What Does The Fox Say?




Good morning!  Today I am sharing a project I created this week, inspired by the newest Photograph challenge at InspiredBy

Make sure to hop on over to the blog because the projects from the designers are SO fun and inspiring again this week!

My project this week is a kindergarten classroom (or toddler) rhyme time game, targeting struggling readers and ELL learners. Every time I looked at the picture, the succulents “growing” was the first thing that I focused on.  So, I decided I wanted to focus on “growth” and that’s when the game came to-mind. 

This week, I was inspired by the foxy succulent, the colors (black, orange and green) and the succulent. 

What Does the Fox Say? Rhyme time game

I used the Fox from Sweet Elsie to be the focal that we would be rhyming for the game.  I cut a circle Game Title using the What does the Fox Say cut.

As I pull the rhyming pieces out of the box, the children will find the picture on their game card and “smack it” with their fox smacker, repeating the rhymes aloud as they find them….fox/clocks, fox/blocks, fox/socks etc.





 In the pic below, I am demonstrating how the game is played:
When you pull out an object from the box, the child uses their "fox swatter" to swat the socks on their game board and when they locate it, say "socks/fox" rhyme.



"rocks/fox rhyme"



"clocks/fox rhyme"



After designing the box to hold the game, I decided to create the game boards using the notepad paper from the Awesome Pencil Card project by Silhouette.  I googled pictures that rhyme with fox, printed them, adhered them to the notebook paper and then laminated each game board.




I created the rhyming pieces from various Silhouette cuts:







I then decided to create the Fox rhyme time smackers using the Fox cut.  I cut 2 fox heads from each color (black and orange), adhered the white detail pieces on the front, adhered them to a dowel and then adhered the blank fox cut to the back of the dowel.






To keep the playing cards nice for a long time to come, I laminated the cards (you can see the glossy ones behind the front two), that way, I am able to use these with my grandson and in the classroom.





Isn't this inspiration the cutest?




 I can't wait to see all the "foxy"/animal cards, layouts and projects this week! 

Thank you for stopping by to visit!
