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 rocket on it and say that it starts with the /r/ sound.
Next, they will place that egg in the letter Rr 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 ring, robot, rain, and rabbit too.
Extensions and Modifications:
You can extend or modify this activity to meet the needs of your students:
- If you attach the baskets to small paper bags or boxes, your students put the eggs into the baskets.
- For even more fun, put the eggs around your classroom or playground and have your kids hunt for them.
- Put the eggs in a tub or container filled with Easter grass or another filler to add some sensory play to this activity.
