During the Easter holiday, use this “hot-potato,” like activity
to introduce or practice spelling words in a fun and interactive way! Fill Easter eggs with your weekly spelling words. Put them into a basket and have students form a circle on the carpet. Begin to sing the song for Eggcellent spelling while passing the basket around the circle.
When the song ends, have the student who is holding the basket, open an egg and read the card! Clap out the spelling, chant the word, or use it in a sentence. Continue playing until all eggs have been opened! Then record your words with the attached sheet. Include golden eggs with extra practice inside to have students read in different ways like a rockstar, baby, cowboy etc.
