An Easter Basket filled with grass
12 plastic eggs with letter stickers
And the girls got to find them.
First I reviewed the letters on the easel, making sure they could tell me the name and the sound. I figured they could, they went beyond what I was asking for by adding a word to go with each sound. Then I showed them the eggs in the egg carton.
They took turns reaching inside the basket for an object.
They told me what it was.
And found the correct egg to place it in.
After we filled all the eggs the girls put the objects back in and they told me what to find (with my eyes closed). I had to tell them the letter and the sound. I tell you, some of those things are hard to find in that grass, especially when you are searching for a specific one.
The girls seem to think it is a great new activity. The were upset when I had them get out their workbooks because I couldn't keep looking for objects when the baby needed to nurse.
