If you've been around here at all lately, you know that we've been working really hard on number recognition, writing our numbers, and counting. This game addresses two of those objectives. This was not my idea (how I wish I could come up with ideas this good!), so you need to go to this website for the free download. Once I printed & cut these eggs, I colored both pieces of each egg to match to add an additional color component to this activity. So now, the student not only has to count the dots, and match it to the number, but they can also match the egg shapes based on color. After I colored the eggs, I laminated them and they were ready to go. I've mentioned that I'm a big advocate for the Montessori Approach, and this activity meets one of those objectives for self-correction. A child/student can easily see which eggs match, even if they can't count because of the colors, therefore enhancing independent learning.
This was another really easy way to be festive and still continue to practice our numbers this spring.
