Spray (bottle) painting - help strengthen grip and control while spray painting with a spray bottle! Make it extra educational by adding letters, numbers, or sight words for students to spray as they are called out. The activity is great for letter recognition, letter sounds, letter associations, hand grip, fine motor control, gross motor control, and following directions.
Magnetic number Fishing. They say the number, or letter they catch in the target language. Or, they can catch two numbers, say them in the TL, add, subtract, or multiply them, and then say the answer in the TL as well.
Quote: "This is an art display for our topic of The Great Fire of London (Year 2). The children each contributed to the border using oil pastels. The fire silhouette pictures were created using watercolour paint and then black pencil crayons over the top once the paint had dried. We looked at photographs of fire as well as a number of sunset silhouette photographs for inspiration."
Relaxing fun is easy. I don't have to hone skills or take action. There's very little coordination with other people or preparation involved. Watching TV - the largest consumer of the world's time after sleeping & work - is relaxing fun.
