These are made with large containers and ping pong balls, but I think that it could also be done with small lids from water bottles and marbles. The whole activity would have to sit in a tray or cookie sheet to prevent the marbles from rolling all over, though.
BRILIANT!! Why didn't I think of this before?! **Vowel Game** •Each child has a laminated strip of vowels and a clothespin. •I say a CVC word like "cat." •The children listen and then put their clothespin on the vowel they hear in the CVC word. What is so great about this game is that you can have the children hold up their strips and you can quickly check and see who is "getting it." And best of all, it is fun!-cute!
