The fear series will continue…
But, for lack of brain power, for now I’ll share with you my Instagram from several days ago. This is a great reading-development activity that makes use of those leftover plastic Easter eggs.
It’s a simple idea I found on Pinterest.
Write one word ending on one side of the egg.
Write many word beginnings on the other side of the egg.
Below is the list of the eggs (word families) we’ve thought up so far.
Caroline is a fairly new reader, so I skipped consonant combinations and avoided words that aren’t read phonetically. (For example, I omitted “gnat” from my “-at” ending words, and I avoided the “-ick” ending because this isn’t our month to tackling consonant combos like “stick” and “trick.”) You could make your word list a little tougher than ours!
We’ve had fantastic results with this activity. It’s so helpful!
Cam (the name of our friend)
ma’am (because it’s the South)
y’all (once again, WE think this is a real word!)
Jen (a friend of Caroline’s)
