- Let the kids go fishing for the cards. Attach paper clips to each card and a magnet to a stick with a string.
- Pick up the cards with a magnet wand. Attach the paper clips, so they'll stick.
- Hide the cards in a large sensory bin. Mine is filled with red beans and rice (Louisiana shout out!). ;) The kids love digging around in the bin, especially the little ones.
- Spread different sets of cards out on the floor for each student. Let the kids race to see who can find all of their matches first.
- Everything is more fun with wild cards! Turn your instruction card into a wild card and change the rules up (i.e. whoever finds the wild card wins, loses a turn, puts a card back, etc.). I put a sticker over my instruction card to make it more fun.
My new download is super cute and chickie themed! It's made to be played like memory, so it's a great opportunity to try some of these new ways to play. :) Check it!
I just can't get enough of these cute Easter chicks. :) It'd also be a fun activity to play after reading There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Chick.
There are 18 pairs of cards for each sound (36 card in all). The pairs that match contain the same chick picture but different target words. I wanted to give my students more of a variety of words. The target sounds include: /prevocalic r, vocalic r, s, l, k, f, sh, ch/.
And of course I added several wild cards to throw into the mix!
Aren't they adorable? You can grab this packet at my TPT store HERE. You can also snag the K set for free!! Just click the download preview button on the TPT page to download the freebie. :)
