Language Development – Fishing for Fun
In previous posts I talked about using themes to help with teaching and practicing new vocabulary with pre-school aged children.
It is also important to use fun games that can be adapted to focus on words and language you are targeting. Fishing games with pictures pasted on cardboard fish, a fishing pole with a magnet and a paper clip connected to each fish is a simple but great game to play with kids. I use the fishing game for work on speech sounds, language development and literacy skills.
In this post I will focus on the concept ‘Opposites’ to build vocabulary around concepts and to help combine words into phrases and sentences. But you can use lots of different types of concepts and targets.
Targeted for Parents. and Teachers. Parents are the child’s best teacher! Have fun, use an animated voice and enjoy special times with your developing child. Be creative with the fish.
