Pop It Activities
Strategic Pop It Game-
*This is a two player game. The goal is to get your partner to pop the last bubble on the pop it toy, allowing you to win!
*Players take turns popping bubbles on the pop it. During your turn, you may pop 1, 2, or 3 bubbles but they must be in the same row.
*Players alternate taking turns until there are only a few bubbles left. Be strategic in your choice of how many bubbles you pop on your fidget to force your opponent to pop the last bubble.
Phonological Awareness Activity-
Phonological awareness is the ability to notice, think about, and work with the individual sounds, or phonemes spoken words. This ability is critical to pre reading skills.
When given a word orally, the child will pop a bubble for each sound they hear in the word. Dog= /d/ /o/ /g/. would mean 3 bubbles should be popped. The pops correlate to sounds rather than letters. For example "boat" has 3 sounds but 4 letters. 3 bubbles should be popped. Play at the level of your child. For example, children= /ch/ /i/ /l/ /d/ /r/ /e/ /n/. That's 7 pops!
