Product Description
word families, eggs, Easter, spring, phonics, onset and rime, rhyming

This printable reinforces phonics skills by making words using onset and rime (word families). Each child will pick a mat. There are four choices of mats for you to use. They will also pick three letters to put on their baskets. Those will be the beginning sound of their words. All eggs should be turned over on the table. When it is their turn, they will turn over an egg. If they can make a word using one of their letters, they can keep the egg. If they can’t, they put it back. Once it goes on the mat and in the basket and the next person takes their turn, they can’t change their minds and move it; it must stay there. When they get the predetermined amount of eggs in their basket, then that basket is done. Their goal is to fill all the baskets with eggs. You can determine how many eggs they need to get; two to four. First person to fill all of their baskets wins.

--127 eggs (rime)
--4 different mats (flower pots)
--3 sets of letters (onset)
--sheet for backs of eggs

Suggestions, tips, and differentiation:
