Math & Literacy Learning Ideas Using Plastic Easter Eggs

For each center idea I place the plastic eggs in Easter grass in our sensory bin or in Easter baskets. The students pick out the eggs and complete the activity.  They can also be hidden around the room like and egg hunt.

I also put the recording pages in page protectors and students use dry erase markers to record their answers to save paper.

If students are doing the activity independently, they take a picture of their completed recording page and upload it to their Seesaw journals so that I can assess it later.

Sight Words Practice

Write sight words on each half of the plastic eggs with marker.  Students search in the Easter grass for matching egg halves, put the egg together (fine motor skills practice), and write the sight word on their pages.
