1-2-3 Come Hatch Some "Craftivities" With Me
I Hatched, is an easy spring writing activity that makes an adorable bulletin board or hallway decoration.
Your students will not only have fun with this March/April writing prompt, but will learn more about their classmates and possibly about themselves as well.
Simply run off my chick and egg templates. Students cut them out and fill in the information.
I’ve included a letter home to parents, as younger children don’t always know any more than the month they were born in, and some don’t even know that. You could also send this activity home to be completed over spring break, and then share on the day children return.
The “favorite activities” pennant adds more flair and an additional writing extension. I’ve included 6 graphing extensions to reinforce that math standard and so students can visually “see” their classmates' answers.
Add feathers; wiggle eyes and straws to jazz things up and you hopefully have “eggs-actly” that little something you’ve been looking for to spice up your writing block.
To reinforce verbal acuity skills and learn more about their friends, have students share their creation with the class, after everyone has “hatched” their egg, then hang them in the hallway for that finishing touch of springtime.

Each year our preschool hatches baby chicks in their classroom. It's a fascinating experience they share with my Y5s.
I found a short baby chicks hatching video (1:13) on YouTube, if you'd like to share it with your kiddos before or after they do the "I Hatched" craftivity.
Thanks for visiting. Do you have a spring writing prompt or craft that's a favorite? Would love to hear from you. firstname.lastname@example.org or feel free to leave a comment below.
