Using a permanent marker, write a number on the top half of the egg – and since we work on recognizing number words in preschool, I write the word on the other side.
On the bottom half I put the corresponding number of dots.
***It’s important to note that I mix up the tops and bottoms. If you do “2” and two dots on both halves a pink egg, then they’re just going to match them up by color instead of counting. Just make sure that you make sure the top and bottom fit together – sometimes eggs from different packs don’t always snap together.
These are pretty self-explanatory. Pick a rhyming ending and write it on the bottom half of an egg then on the top half going around the edge write every beginning letter that will make it into a word.
Here are the ones I used (for 4-5 year olds):
-at: bat, cat, hat, mat, pat, rat, sat, vat
-an: can, fan, man, pan, ran, tan, van
-ug:bug, dug, hug, mug, rug, tug
-og: dog, fog, hog, log, frog
-ail: fail, jail, mail, nail, pail, rail, sail, tail (you can also do snail and trail but I tried to avoid two beginning letters for this age group – they’re still trying to master single letter beginning sounds)
-ing: ding, king, ring, sing, wing
Math Fact Eggs: Write math facts (2+2, 3×4) on top halves and answers on bottom.
