Jelly bean numbers & sight words (freebie)


Last week while working on the sight words with one of my students he requested that I put sight words in plastic eggs.  I have posted about how I do this before with a sight word egg hunt, but this is a student that I only work with for 30 minutes a day so I wanted to figure out another way for us to do this.  I sat down at the computer and this activity is what came of it.  

This really simple.  All you do is print out the page with the numbers & sight words (I chose to print them on brightly colored cardstock) and stick the numbers or words in eggs depending on which ones you are using.   Now that Easter is over, I am going to see if I can find some of the jelly bean eggs on sale.  (If you see them let me know!)  To complete this activity the kiddo pulls an egg from the basket, opens is (fine motor), reads the word/number, and then finds the matching jellybean on their paper, color it in, then close the egg back up.  With my sight word kids, I had them put the egg back in the basket so if they pulled it again then they practiced the word again.  With the little one in these pictures I put the egg to the side after she opened it.



This activity went over great!  The little one in the picture has been giving me a run for my money lately since I try to push her at the end of the school day.  I have not been able to get her to work on anything for any length of time.  This activity however, caught her attention right away.  I plan on using this again after spring break to keep the learning and review rolling.

So after all of this are you ready to download this activity.  It is posted for free in my new Educents store! While you are there look around and see what goodies you can find.


I would love to know how you use this and what your students think of it. Please leave a comment letting me know
