Easter Learning Unit - Week 3!

Easter Learning Unit - Week 3!
Learning Activities
Easter Egg Match
Beginning Sounds, matching
I created a document with the letters V, H, F, R, Q, N and L with pictures of a violin, house, fan, robot, basketball, queen, nail and lion. I cut them into oval - egg shapes and cut them in half.  Addie chose a letter and matched it with the object that had the same beginning sound!
Gluing the egg matches to the paper!
Easter Egg Match - Rhyming Words
Rhyming, matching
I did the same thing as above only this time I focused on rhyming.  Addie had to rhyme and match house/mouse, bee/key, nail/pail and pan/fan.
Gluing a rhyming pair to the paper

Easter Egg Dice Game!
Math, counting, one-to-one correspondence, writing numbers

Addie and I played this Easter Egg game together.  We took turns rolling a die and writing the dots on each half of the egg.  Then Addie added/counted the dots and wrote the sum for each Egg! 
Here is the link to this document from The Happy Teacher - I modified the activity for Addie.
