Materials: A ball for each player

How To Play: Each player has a ball. On the leader’s signal,
players toss their balls in the air (10′ or more). As the balls land,
players try to catch a different ball. Establish a group record for
number of different balls caught, create another strategy, and try
again. In one possible strategy, players could call a ball (e.g. “I’ve
got red!”)

Materials: None

How To Play: This activity can be used to reinforce phonemic
awareness, such as ending sounds in a word. Choose a category, such as
foods or animals. The first player says a word in the category, such as
horse. The next player says a new word in that category with the last
sound in the first person’s word, such as seal. Continue around the
circle of players in this pattern: horse, seal, lion, etc.
