|The pieces were small so I was planning on using this to work on his fine motor skills. But we were getting a little bored with our magnet board....|
So, I decided to put the magnetic board & this silly sentence game together...and it was a huge hit! In fact, he is playing with it right now, and he has only been up about 30 minutes. But, I gave it a little twist in order to make it a little easier. Notice how each type of card is color coded? Well....I matched it up with same color Easter eggs!!!
|Here is our new magnetic board (it's actually an oil drip pan). The silly sentence pieces are in my vegetable tray that I usually use for sorting games. (The tape on the floor is for our at home OT...animal walks, tight-rope walking, etc.)|
|Each part of the sentence has already been color coded. We added Easter eggs for an added visual aid....and it's fun! I had to get a little creative with the 2 piles of red, but Ethan didn't seem to mind that it was different.|
|The eggs were too heavy for the magnetic strips to hold them up, so I ended up having to tape them to the board.|
|Silly Sentence game turned magnetic!|
Now the wheels are turning.....I could personalize it with our OWN cards. I could use names of people in the family. I could use picture cards as well. I could have made it shorter & used fewer words....like only a noun + a verb. I decided to use all of the parts of speech because this is Ethan's thing....he loves to read & spell. He was squealing with excitement, and I couldn't stop laughing. It was so much fun! I LOVE how big this magnetic board is! AND I don't have to wait for the playroom to be finished to use it! YEA!
