Having Fun Reading Using "Word Eggs!"
Grace loves to read and she is such a great reader. She is now reading hundreds of words. I thought it would be fun for Grace to make "word eggs" for her using our leftover plastic Easter eggs. To make these eggs I wrote a word family ending on one half of the egg (-ing in the picture above) and consonants, blends, and diagraphs on the other half of the egg. Grace puts the two halves of the eggs together, reads the word and then turns the egg to create a whole new word! Grace has many of these eggs and she loves to read them.
I'll be sharing another handmade reading activity in an upcoming post using paint chip samples. Oh, how I LOVE paint samples! :)
