"Eggscellent" Easter Word Work - Freebie!

So I have been tutoring these girls for the past 2 years.  One is in 4th grade and the other is in kindergartner.  I only see them once a week but when I see them they are really a lot of fun.  Their mom is such a cool mom and is always incorporating hands on materials to make learning fun in their house.  

Last year, the oldest girl was learning multiplication.  Her mom tried to make it fun by involving plastic eggs.  Each egg would be a particular number for the times table.  For example, one egg would include all the "2" multiplication problems.  On one side of the egg would be the 2 times table starting with 0x2 and it would move on from there.  On the other side of the egg would be the answers but just not in the right order.  It would be the girl's job to move around the egg to find certain matches to make the problem complete.  I thought it was a great idea.  Which got me to think.  I can do something like that with ending sounds!  

  Look at what I bought!

I turned it into this...

Which then I turned it into this!

"Eggscellent" Easter Center!

I loved making these for my little ones!

I made these fun and cute recording sheets for the students to keep the activity going when they are done making words!
