Using our All About Spelling tiles and our miniature objects for learning to read and write, I chose about eight different cvc words to hide in last year’s Easter eggs.
The correct letters are there; they just need to be put in the correct order to make the word. I thought J-jo would be ready, but he isn’t. I still do this activity with him when he is willing, as I did with Bear when she was that age (scroll down a bit if you visit the link). I figure he’s absorbing some of it and that when he is ready, it will all click.
Only objects are in the eggs. Bear gets a slip of paper from the basket and writes the word herself (this is mostly because after filling all the other eggs, I ran out of AAS tiles in spite of owning three sets of them, but Bear wanted more objects for which to write names).
