Playing with Water
Matching words- I put this activity at the word study work station towards the end of the year. (I don't think they could handle it without making a mess in the beginning of the year.) I got the little bath toy animals at Dollar Tree and wrote words on the bottom of them with Sharpie. I had cards with the same words. Use a tub and fill it slightly with water so the toys can float.
For the game- Kids draw 1 card and get a chance to pick 1 of the toys to see it has the matching word. If it does, they keep the match. If not, they put the card and toy back and it's their partners turn. Player at end with most matches, wins!
