I found another use for my thesis drafts!
I used them to make fish cutouts.
I drew some letters and poked holes in them. I fastened some rubber bands to them. So they could be hooked to our make-shift fishing rod.
For the fishing rod, I used a paintbrush with a long handle. I tied a ribbon to it and used a paperclip for a hook.
Caleb had to listen to a word that I said and hook the fish with the correct beginning sound. I also varied this by showing him picture flashcards.
Here he is busy “catching” fish. This was also great practice for fine motor skills 🙂
When we were done, he hooked all the fish onto the rod.
A simple, fun, and inexpensive learning activity 🙂
Have a great weekend everyone!
Simple and easy matching activity.
I used materials that were readily available at home:
1. baking tray
2. alphabet magnets
3. paper with alphabet outlines (used colored pencil to trace the letters onto the paper)
I wanted to do this activity because Caleb pretty much memorized the his store-bought alphabet puzzles—since these were in order from A-Z.
I mixed up the letters .
Caleb would sound out the letters as he would match them.
Before and after picture.
Caleb gets an alphabet to stick on to the paper if he can make the alphabet sound/give a word that begins with the alphabet. If your kid loves stickers. This is a great way to motivate them to review/learn the alphabet. Who says learning can’t be fun?
