Oh, Monday... for some odd reason, coffee has zero effect on me today. Strange.
This week's "Make it Work" Monday was made possible by a little friend who decided that he was having a "been there, done that" day with my materials closet. This was until he spotted the still-plastic-wrapped box of "Wash My Underpants" (a game found in the endless Narnia-like 'fun finds' section of Target).
There are so many different uses for this material! Besides playing the game in it's traditional sense, you can match pairs of underwear, identify and label concepts like "same vs different", "colors", practice quantitative concepts (such as "more"/"most"), label object function, follow simple and complex commands, practice those core words ("put in", "take out", "clean", "dirty"), use descriptors, take turns...the list goes on and on and on!
...AND he had fun. #winning
Until next time :)
