I created this Easter egg hunt to help my students review vowel sounds, reading CVC words, and digraphs. This document includes sample words to use for 2 separate egg hunts (1. vowel sounds & CVC words, 2. digraphs).
For example, I put all the words with vowel a in pink eggs, vowel e in blue eggs, vowel i in yellow eggs, vowel o in green eggs, and vowel u in purple eggs. BUT I didn't tell the students about that. I told them to find an egg then meet with their peers who had the same color eggs. They were asked to read the words together and figure out what was similar about their words. It was amazing to see the students work together and come to the correct conclusion themselves!
