A fun way to do vocabulary words is to go fishing for them. I have used it with someone as young as 18 months. I learned this from the Early Intervention Speech Therapist and I have been using it for three years.
What you need:
- Small stick with string and magnet on the end; We use a magnetic fishing pole from a puzzle
- Paper Clips
- Word Cards of some type: Word Family Words, CVC Words, Sight Words, Any vocabulary cards, picture card
Have them put the paper clips on the cards. This is a great fine motor skill.
When they are done turn the cards face down.
They fish for the card, turn it over and say the word on the card.
My girls will ask for this. We did it once but they wanted to keep going so I let them. They will do this for 30 minutes straight. It is a great way to review something and have it be fun!
I also use a variation where I put a random color on the back of each card. They have to announce the color they are picking and then get it.
Homeschool Creations: Knight Pack cards were used in this example.
