Something FUN to keep your little ones practicing their counting and number words over summer! All the directions for creating this game are included along with the colorful number fish. It’s easy and can be played at two levels: numeral recognition or for sight word number practice!
The bubbles are made with glitter glue – which dries with a fun raised texture! Thing Two LOVES his “fishy game” and has asked to count his bubbles all week!
Thing One worked on his sight words with the number words set of fish. He wanted a picture by his completed board like his Little Brother. They both really had fun with this game and I am leaving it up on the wall for future use…and formulating a plan for more poster board games like this, so be sure to follow Ironic Adventures on Facebook and Twitter to get updates on new printables!
Linking Up With…
Some LOTW Rainbow fun and some Rainbow Robots from Homeschool Creations were in the drawers for this week. He enjoyed his activities – especially his Robots, he LOVES Robots! He even sleeps with a crochet one I made him.
Robot Shape Matching – I drew on the shapes for him because he isn’t ready for just the words yet. He loved it!
The color matching activity with LOTW was pretty creative! He enjoys matching his clouds…though I told him to put them on the half of the rainbow without a cloud – but he INSISTED that they didn’t go there, and so matched htem on top of the cloud that was already there, oh well. lol
He got tired of waiting for his brother to roll a 3 to add the last cloud to our Roll-a-Rainbow form LOTW. He decided to add it himself (much to the dismay of Thing One).
THIS is my BRAG moment for the week. He matched ALL his UC/LC letter (not laid out in order either!) BY HIMSELF. I was super proud and surprised. He is so good with so much of the “preK” level stuff, he might be a bit ahead of Thing One in the long run. He is certainly ahead of him as compared to Thing One’s abilities at 28 months! We’ll see how it goes. He thinks he’s just having fun – HA! Joke’s on him.
He also loved matching up our Shamrocks from our “5 Little Shamrocks” poem I made up for the St. Patrick’s Day Number Fun Pack. You can check out the activities in action HERE and download the pack for free HERE.
Linking Up To Tot School:
Gave Thing Two a game I found at Dollar Tree to play with…first he took out all the tees by COLOR.
Then I noticed he was replacing them by COLOR as well.
Not only by COLO – but by QUANTITY TOO?!
He wanted me to see his “game”
Organized by COLOR SYMMETRICALLY! WHAT THE…..?! Seriously, this kid has some OCD issues. Wonder where he gets THAT from…lol I don’t know what kind of “mind” or “learning style” this is showing…but it has to mean something (other than being nuts like his Mama!)
