June’s Play Trays
Sea shell matching. I took photos of each shell and taped
them to the tray. As the children pull a shell out of the
sandbox they match it to the picture. I also included a
guide to the names of the shells.
Grace, my practicum student, made this tray of an octopus with
dotted legs. She added flat bottom marbles to count and place
on each dot.
A game in which as the fish turn they open and close their mouths.
The children try to catch them with a fishing rod.
Not as easy as it looks.
I painted the underside of shells to play a colour matching game.
Sea creatures to sort in different ways; colour, type, etc.
Grace made a discovery bottle. She used blue aquarium rocks to
partly fill the bottle then added fish, shells, glass beads to roll and
find. Before putting each item in the bottle she took a picture and
made a guide to help the children find them all.
A fish, sea shell, octopus and jelly fish bath tub mat turned upside
down to place marbles on each suction cup.
