Easy Center Idea

Hey all- for those of you who are back this week from Spring Break are you as exhausted as I am?! This whole not wearing sweats and talking all day thing is wearing me out! Ha!

So, this morning after I hit snooze for AN HOUR(!), I finally made myself get up and shower. As I was spending a lifetime drying my hair (It's so very long) I checked email on my phone and saw that I won the giveaway at Cheers to School! OH YEAH! I won't lie, I broke it down in a very hip and cool dance while still blowdrying my hair!

Yesterday afternoon I went to Target and found these cute placemats. Too cute not to buy and so inexpensive!
I decided to turn them into bingo boards for word work. I wrote sight words in each egg and added them to cards.  I chose words with spelling patterns that some of my kiddos are struggling with. 
I left them big today and ran off two sets of cards to see what my kids thought. they loved it! I may cut them down to smaller boards in a few days after everyone has had a chance to play and make it a blackout game.

How's that for an Egg-celent idea?!
