oviparous animals and their eggs

Oviparous animals - and their eggs -  have taken over the sand table.

Since eggs are seasonal right now, we are chatting about oviparous animals.  

We read a couple of books about animals that hatch from eggs.

Back to the sand table.  I put in the larger size plastic Easter eggs and a bunch of small oviparous animals.

The kidlets have asked that a crocodile, alligator, squid, owl, ladybug, peacock and a snail join the other animals.

The kidlets have been playing with the eggs and the animals.  I always love watching and listening over their shoulders to see (and hear) what life they are bringing to the materials.

Michelle at Apples and ABCs did a sort with oviparous animals and Easter eggs with her kidlets.  

Sara at the Happy Brown House has free oviparous animal printables.

And there are lots of Eggcelent Easter Ideas at the Linky Party that Mary is hosting at Sharing Kindergarten.

loving my plastic eggs,
