Word Family Egg Hunt: Freebie!

Hi friends! 
Just a quick post to share my "Word Family Egg Hunt" activity that I have been doing with my students this week in stations. They have been LOVING this, and I wanted to share the template I made with all of you.

For this game, I wrote a number on all 16 plastic eggs. Inside the eggs, I put plastic letter beads that spelled CVC words. I sorted the beads ahead of times and wrote a master list of all the words that were inside the eggs so that I would have a reference. 
To play the game, the kids take turns "cracking" an egg and dumping the letters onto their mats. They have to unscramble the word and figure out what it is. A strategy that we came up with was to find the vowel first, and put it in the middle of the word. :) 
After they found their word, I have them write it on their paper with a dry erase marker! 
We've played this game all week, and the excitement is definitely still there!

CVC Games and a Freebie!

Hi friends! It has been a VERY long time since I've blogged. I'm here today with a quick post about some of my favorite CVC games and centers that I have been using with my students this school year. 
If you stick around till the end of the post, there's a fun freebie for you too! :) 

My students have been LOVING these word family foldable books that we've been making. We have one for each word family, and they call them their "flappy books." Students cut on the dotted lines to make the flaps, and then the page with flaps gets stapled to the bottom page. Students practice reading sentences and CVC words. 

We have been loving our milk and cookie CVC matching games in centers too! 

And these CVC blending puzzles are a big hit as well! I love that my students can do them independently. :) 

It's almost spring time, so I made a fun little rainbow CVC word matching game for my kiddos to play this month:
