Ways To Use The Easter Beginning Sounds Sorting Activity:
For this activity, your students will select an egg and identify the picture’s beginning sound.
They will then place the egg in the correct letter basket.
Your kids will continue to sort through the pictures until the baskets are filled with five eggs each.
For example, your children pick an egg with a picture of a fox on it and say that it starts with the /f/ sound.
Next, they will place that egg in the letter F Easter basket.
Your kids will continue sorting through the eggs until they find and fill the basket with the ones that have pictures of a fish, fan, football, and fog too.
