Early Childhood Activity Bank
Read to children Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss. Follow up your reading by
- inviting children to design and draw their own extraordinary eggs. Have them tell why their egg is extraordinary and record their words on their drawings. Let children then read their words back to you.
- pre-cutting egg shapes. Divide each shape with a jagged cut. On one side write a number; on the other side draw a corresponding number of dots. Mix up the halves and let children match the correct number to the corresponding number of dots.
- giving each child a pre-cut lower case e shape. Help children understand the sound e makes in the beginning of the word egg. Encourage children to decorate their letter e with crayons, markers, even pieces of egg shells.
