Phonics Game: - 'Beach Ball Bash' involves writing onset and rime onto differect sections of a beach ball. When the students catch the ball they have to combine the sounds beneath their hands and say it aloud. It is a fun way to have a little fun practicing common blends and word endings. 
This is a nice end of session or lesson transition game.
What You Need:

- a cheap blow up beach ball
- clear or coloured contact
- permanent marker
1. Cut out circles from the contact about 10cm diameter.
2. Stick the contact onto the ball as shown.
3. Write blends on the top of the ball and word endings onto the bottom.
How to Play:

1. Teacher or group leader tosses the ball to a student and they must catch it with one hand on an initial blend and one on the word ending.
2. Student combines the word elements, says it aloud to the group and tosses it back to the leader.

- When a child is unsure of which circle to read go with the letters closest to the student's pointer finger.
- Write the letters in permanent marker. Parents tend to get a little 'thingy' about ink stains on school clothes :)
