Word family apple trees - a literacy game for fall

To go along with our apple unit study I put together a word family apple tree activity to help him as he is learning to read. Kindergarten Apple Unit Study J-Bug has been learning to read, and I've noticed that he does really well with word families.

Place several plastic eggs in a basket. Fill each egg with letter tiles for students to open them and unscramble them to make CVC words. Students must make the word, blend and say the word, then write the word on the recording sheet
