Spring, Eggs, and Easter Ideas and Activities

There are some great resources shared on Paths to Literacy and we highlighted just a few to help you with your lesson planning and goals during this springtime. We have egg hunt ideas for our students with visual impairments and Easter crafts.

As the new content manager for Paths to Literacy, I am continually amazed at the amount of wonderful ideas, knowledge, and strategies collected throughout the years.  It is a goal of mine to highlight some past posts each season so they are continually used and recognized by our community. 

Ruby in Her Own Time: Circle Time Braille Kit

By Diane Brauner 

Ruby in Her Own Time is a Circle Time Braille Kit focusing on counting skills and duck fun facts.  This kit is based on the book Ruby in Her Own Time written by Jonathan Emmett and illustrated by Rebecca Harry.

This is a great kit filled with ideas for counting, sorting, rhyming songs, all along with the book and of course, ducks.
