Word Eggs

In this fun activity the kids practice spelling simple cvc words.

Materials: plastic eggs, pictures of cvc words (cat, bug, pot, etc.), magnetic letters, and a magnetic board

Preparation: Place a picture and the letters needed to spell the word in each egg. I made two sets of six eggs.
The child opens an egg and dumps out the picture and letters. Then she names the picture and repeats the word slowly, listening for the sounds. She lays the picture on the left side of the magnetic board and uses the letters to make the word.
