Editor's Note: If you have a budding pre- or early-reader in your home, this activity is for you. It's seasonal, it's cute, and -- psst! -- it's easy. (For you, that is.) Sarah at Live, Laugh, and Learn shared how she made Easter egg word families and inspired me to go buy some plastic eggs this afternoon. -Jenna
Easter Egg Word Families!
So pick up a dozen plastic eggs and an egg carton. (I purposely bought the Eggland's Best Organic eggs last week for it's clear carton. You don't have to be so Type-A.)
On the taller side of each egg, write a word-family ending. I used the following: -at, -an, -en, -et, -in, -ing, -op, -ock, -un, and -ump. Then, on the shorter side, write beginning consonants or blends that, together with the word family ending, make words.
