Whack-a-word! (OR whack-a-letter!) Call out a word and who ever hits it first with the hammer gets to keep it. Could think of lots of applications for this - recognizing sight words, finding rhyming words, learning vocabulary--Used fly swatters also
This activity helps kids learn sight words while also developing fine motor skills. To increase the level of complexity, challenge kids to build sentences out of these words! (Idea from Kinder Journey.) What wonderful way to work on sight words!
