Feed the Reindeer

Feed the Reindeer

I am a big advocate for interactive therapy activities.  I like my students to be doing something.  I created Feed the Reindeer activities to accomplish that.  This year I am pushing into a Kindergarten classroom and wanted fun phonemic awareness activities. 

Reindeer and carrots for initial /k/ sound

I glued reindeer onto small gift bags.  I cut out a hole for the mouth that the students could feed small pictures through.  I spread the pictures in the center of the table.  Each student selects card and tells the group what it is.  They then tap the word into individual phonemes.  If they select cat, it becomes c-a-t.  They count out how many phonemes and feed it to the correct reindeer.  I like to add a picture of Santa as a wild card.  The student who finds Santa wins.  To keep the game going I mix Santa back in with the cards and we continue playing.  It is always fun to have multiple winners.  This activity is always a hit with my Kindergarteners.  This year I decided to expand it to my articulation students.  They are going to feed the reindeer pictures with their target sounds.  I plan to send the reindeer and pictures as practice.

Until next week, Happy Holidays!
