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!
