Hi and welcome back to Attentionology for K – 5 Teachers!
Bunnies aren’t just for certain holiday celebrations; these furry creatures are a symbol of springtime!
Sweet little animals, like bunnies, attract kids’ attention any time of the year.
Plan a Bunny Bonanza Day to get your students “hopping” to learn.
Schedule a day when bunnies will “rule.”
Prepare a few teaching resources and for the plan, as follows, to make the most of your Bunny Bonanza.
Bunny Bonanza Masters – Locate a puppet or stuffed animal bunny to use as a “Master of the Bunny Bonanza” on the designated day.
Print a poster that welcomes your class to the Bunny Bonanza.
Buy or make a set of bunny ears for a kid to wear.
Begin Bunny Bonanza Day by introducing your stuffed animal bunny holding the welcome poster in hand.
For extra impact, give the bunny a name, like “Clover.”
Announce that the bunny is the Master of the Bunny Bonanza.
Invite a student who has done an outstanding “job” in class to come to the front and “serve” as
the Co-Master (along with your stuffed animal bunny) of the Bonanza.
Place the bunny ears on the child’s head and ask the class for a round of applause.
Explain that the Co-Master is entitled to wear the bunny ears all day, and will be called on to help with special events during the Bunny Bonanza.
Plan learning activities (Bunny Bonanza Special Events) to suit your curriculum.
