We are learning about oviparous animals this week in science. The students loved listening to Chickens Aren't the Only Ones by Ruth Heller and discovering which animals come from eggs.  I have created What is in the egg? as a reading station for this week and next.  My students love to play games together.  They can be at this station for cvc words and sight words.  I can differentiate the cvc station for my groups since I included the dolch words for kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade.  I also differentiate the sight word station by only using the words that each group is able to read. I want to make sure my students are fluent with their sight words and not "guessing" when they are reading.
If you like our new game, you may find it here at Tpt or here at Teacher's Notebook.

  1. I saw your posting on the Sellers Forum of TPT; so, I wanted to check out your new blog.

    This posting reminded me of a funny story. I dyed Easter eggs with my two granddaughters. I had cooked the eggs at home; so, they didn't see me boil them. After they were dyed, we decided to eat the one that had a crack in it. They couldn't believe what was inside because they had never seen the inside of a boiled egg before! I think they believed the eggs changed because we dyed them.

    Good luck with your blog. Come by and visit mine sometime. I teach math and post all kinds of articles and teaching ideas. You might find one you like.
