Stop everything… I found the Easter Egg Unicorn; four piece Easter Eggs. Who even knew these existed?! I grabbed them here on Amazon. This one box will make 42 eggs that are 4 inches with all four pieces put together.
The Four Piece Eggs
The eggs come in two sections; tops and bottoms. You can easily break them down into four parts. You can see the four dots that are used to assemble the eggs. I did not find the eggs hard to put together. I am sure it could be a slight challenge for some little learners. Overall, I think student will be fine.
These eggs were of good quality for plastic eggs. They held together well and I could easily take them apart and put them back together over and over again.
You can differentiated these eggs with ease. Let me show you some simple ways. You can also use my free printables to differentiate for your little learners.
First, you can use these eggs in two sections like they come in the box. I used these for digraph sounds like the sh word shown above.
Secondly, another option is to break the egg into four pieces and have the students build the egg this way.
Still, you can leave the middles together and break apart the beginning and ending sounds. This may be great for sounds like the bossy rs. This may be a great option for those double vowels like ee or ea.
Four Egg Activity Ideas
To make these four piece Easter eggs the most educational, I have some free printables you can grab! Let me show you them and then I will show you how to grab them.
First, there are several leveled word cards. One version has the word, another has the picture, and the last has both. The harder version is actually the one with the picture only and the easiest is the version with the word and picture together.
Next, students find their egg pieces and put their word together to match their picture.
How great could this activity be in a sensory table or an Easter egg basket? LOVE this!
Finally, the student can use the recording sheet to write down their word. (Don’t worry, all these parts are provided, you only need the four piece Easter eggs.)
Extending for Phonics Fun
These four piece Easter eggs can help engage your learners in many phonics skills. This is huge because once Kindergarten teachers cover the alphabet, they usually cover many phonics skills in different orders. These eggs are ideal for this because you can cover SO MANY phonics skills with just these eggs.
Check out these differentiated egg activities for the sh digraphs.
I want you to be empowered to use these eggs to cover the skills you need with so much fun!
Open Ended Four Piece Easter Egg Section
As I said before, all these Kindergarten teacher are working on different skills. This is why I even made you a completely open ended section. This means you can use this pack for your specific Easter eggs.
