Pediatric Therapy Activity of the Week: Word Family Fishing
[Source: I Can Teach My Child]
After our Word Family Snowball Toss activity, I was trying to think of a way to repurpose the ping pong balls and thought it would be fun to use them to fish!
Learning word families (words with the same ending sound) is beneficial for children as they learn to recognize chunks in words. Since these words rhyme, it is also a great phonemic awareness activity after the fact as they recall some of the words they caught in their nets and other words that rhyme with them!
