Monday Made It- April Egg-dition

Hey There! The crafting and creating bug has been humming in my ear lately, but I haven't had a lot of time to get anything done.  Hopefully I'll find some spare moments soon and get some projects underway.  
A few things I was able to create were a math and literacy center for my kiddies and they have been loving them! 

First up is Springtime Synonyms.  I filled a shoebox with some Easter grass and wrote a word on each half of a plastic eggs. 

Super simple and a nice review for my third graders on synonyms and helped to build some vocabulary for my ELL students! 

Next I created a math station called Egg-Citing Multiplication.  I used my cheap Easter Eggs again to display two factors...I just did this with my Sharpie...because I'm fancy like that. 

My students liked matching two factors to their product and their teacher loves anything that reviews multiplication and division facts! 

If you'd like to use my same little chickies you can download them HERE from my TPT store.  

I'm getting excited because here in Chicagoland we're finally experiencing some spring weather! Perhaps I will be able to pack away my winter clothes before summer vacation after all! 

Don't forget to check out Tara's terrific blog and all of the other Monday Made Its!


  1. I am totally fancy with a Sharpie too. There are so many things you can do with those plastic Easter eggs and the kids LOVE it. Your kids look happy with them. You are brave to have that grass out. It gives me the heeby jeebies when it gets all over the place. Glad y'all are getting some springy weather!

  2. Doing the multiplication eggs for sure!! Thank you! Here in Texas…already using the AC on some days.

    1. Alright, well now I'm jealous of your weather!

  3. Love the idea! Do you think it would work with compound words?
