Word Families

After Easter, I bought 200 Easter eggs for $2.00 at Wal-Mart.  I am constantly finding new ways to use my Easter eggs and here is one of them...

The students rotate the egg to spell a new word.  Then they record the word on their recording sheet.  Each egg will have 4 words on it when you twist the sides.  They will record all the words from the purple egg next to the word "purple".  They will record all the words from the yellow egg next to the word "yellow" and so forth, until they fill the sheet.

At the very top right hand corner of the recording sheet is an egg.  They must write a number in that egg.  The number should be the same as the bag they are getting the eggs from.  For example, all eggs with a #4 on the bottom will go in the bag with a #4 and be recorded on the recording sheet with the #4.  I am probably making it more confusing but the kids get it!  I do this because bag #1 may have all short /a/ words and bag #2 may have all short /e/ words.
