It's the time of year when you can't walk in a store without seeing a display of plastic eggs. They are inexpensive and can be used for a variety of learning activities in your classroom. Here's a video I did last year where I demonstrate these activities.

Note!  Parents would probably enjoy knowing how to recycle these eggs at home.

Reading Games
Write an upper case letter on one half with a permanent marker and the lower case letter on the other half.
*Give children small pictures of objects to put into appropriate eggs.

Antonyms and Synonyms
Put antonyms on eggs for children to match.
Write synonyms on eggs.

Two Letter Words
Write two letter words on eggs. Children make words and then read them. Can they use the word in a sentence?

Word Families
Write onsets (consonants or blends) on one half and rimes (word endings) on the other half. Children twist around and read words. You could also ask children to write the words.

Sight Words
Make puzzles of sight words and put them in the eggs. Children put the letters together, read the word, and then write the word.
Put random letters in the egg and ask children to see how many words they can make and write from the letters.

Make puzzles of simple sentences and challenge children to put the words together and read the sentence.
