Zayit enjoys searching for words, shapes, colors, etc. Today we made different colored circles and put one word in each. I would shout out which word to find next and he would look around, run and jump in the corresponding circle. In order to use up as much energy as possible, I would call out words that were far from each other. He had a blast and reinforced his sight word knowledge at the same time.
Looking for the word "play"
Spelling out p-l-a-y
Yay! Jump on 'play'
We also did "jumping squares," or hopscotch with numbers. This is an old go-to for him. He hasn't mastered the hopping on one foot idea, so we still have big jumps.
Before we were working on sight words, we did this with colors: "go jump in the PURPLE circle"; shapes: "go jump in the HEXAGON"; letters, numbers, etc. You get the idea.

I often draw special "dangerous paths", with clouds, birds, baloons, umbrellas...ReplyDelete
My children love it!
