At my school, every class has an Easter egg hunt. Yep, even the 8th graders have a chance to run around frantically looking for eggs. :) I wanted to put a little twist on our Easter egg hunt to make it somewhat academic (gotta tie a standard to everything, right??).
Each child was asked to bring in 6 plastic Easter eggs, filled with a goodie. I collected all of the eggs and prepped them by writing sight words on the eggs....
Each student was assigned their own sight word. They could only collect eggs with their word on it. I wrote the word on their hand (with washable marker) in case they forgot mid-hunt.
The students LOVED the challenge, and when they finished collecting their eggs, they were able to help a friend find their words.
I hope you had a wonderful Easter...and now it's SPRING BREAK FOR ME!!!!!!!!!!!!
