Egg-cellent Easter Phonics Activities

As we’re quite egg-cited that Easter is nearly here, we’ve decided to put together several egg-straordinarily good activities for your class. So hatch a plan for your next lesson with these cracking activities!

 

1) Easter Eggs

Children search for words that contain either the long ‘ee’ sound (as in ‘Easter’) or short ‘e’ sound (as in ‘Eggs’), and put them into the correct basket!

 

2) Which Came First: the Chicken or the Egg?

Children search through a selection of chicks and eggs which, when put together, form compound words!

 

3) Crack and Write CVC Eggs

Children crack open three eggs to reveal different letter sounds written on them. They then need to try to put together a word with these letter sounds!

 

4) Letter Sounds Egg Hunt

Children have to search the school for Easter eggs which contain the same letter sounds as on their baskets!

 

5) Suffix Eggs

Different root words and suffixes are written on half of a broken egg. Children then need to match the eggs together to create a word!

 

If you’ve enjoyed these activities with your class, or have any other activity ideas that you’d like to share with us, then don’t hesitate to drop us an email! We’d love to hear from you – just email brad@jollylearning.co.uk to say hello.
