Easter Egg Word Families Sheet (freebie)

Everyone has seen the Easter egg word families on the web or on Pinterest, I'm sure.  It is certainly not a new idea.  One of my coworker asked oh so nicely if I would make a recording sheet for her set.  I was happy to oblige.  Since it was all made up, I thought I would share it with you all.

The simple idea is to write with sharpie on plastic Easter eggs.  On one end, you will write the word ending (at, an, it, etc.)  Then there are a couple of options for the other end.  You can write a different letter on each long end to have students match to make a word.  Or you can write multiple letters around the long end and students can twist to match and make a word.

For the recording sheet, the students will write the real words on the eggs in the correct nest.

As always, if you want the editable version so you can add your own word families, leave a comment with your email address or email me.

Let me know if you are able to use this!
