We love when we can turn learning to read into a game! Now that we are nearing spring (Yay!) and Easter is just around the corner, these free Easter Egg CVCe Word Puzzles are perfect for my students to practice reading and writing these “silent e” words in a fun, hands-on way!
*Pair with our Easter Centers and Activities for Pre-K & Kindergarten!
Easter Egg CVCe Word Puzzles
CVCe words (consonant, vowel, consonant followed by an e, which makes the vowel long) go by many nicknames – “super e” words and “magic e” words are two common examples. But there are several more ways teachers refer to them to make them fun and memorable!
These puzzles strengthen long vowel skills in a fun way with an Easter egg theme that is perfect for spring.
How to Play
Time to play! We spread out the pieces and first picked up the top half. We read the CVCe word, then looked for what picture matched best.
The eggs are various colors including some duplicate colors. This gives a bit of a confidence booster for kids who may need some extra support, because it narrows down the choices while still giving them practice reading the words and feeling successful.
The activity also comes with black and white eggs as an extra challenge for kids that may not need the color hint. Plus, it’s a great ink-saving option! I like to print the black and white copies on colored paper to still add a level of festive fun.

We matched up the eggs but we weren’t done! We kept going by recording our work on the printable recording sheet. This recording sheet is of course, optional, but can be great for independent work time or literacy centers.
After the students matched up all of the pieces, they wrote the CVCe word for the picture in the top half of the eggs. Then, I let my kids color the pictures – they love that part!
