Way Down Deep in the Deep Blue Sea Activity

Make a book full of sea creatures by printing and cutting these pages into fourths. Staple together, and you can use construction paper for a cover. Help your child know the names of all the creatures, and they can color them to make them silly. Ask your child "What do you see in the sea?" They will say "I see a shark in the sea", etc. Help them to make their good /s/ sound by "keeping the tiger in the cage" (aka keeping their tongue behind their teeth).

Too Loud Lily Activity

Lots of variety here. Print two copies of the hippo page and two copies of the /l/ words page. Cut out hippos into cards, and glue a word on the back of each picture.

1. Play a matching game! Have your child say the /l/ word two times each time they flip a card over, and when they get a match they say it 5-10 times.

2. Play Go Fish with the cards, and when they get a match they have to say the word 5-10 times. If you get a match, have them still say it 5-10 times to get the practice.

3. Hide the hippos, and have your child "look" for them. Give directions, "look under the table" or "look on the couch." Emphasize the /l/ sound. Take turns hiding and giving directions.

Mushroom in the Rain Activity

Print out one of each of the following three pages. Read the story, your child can help you read it by reading the picture symbols in the story. After you read the story, cut out the animals and re-tell the story by placing them under the mushroom to get out of the rain. Make sure your child uses their good /r/ sound!
