(target sounds are color coded - functional for groups with different target sounds)
SPLAT GAME: mix all target words with SPLAT cards face down and have kids pick from the pile of cards. Instruct each kid to pick 3 cards (or any # of your choice). Say each word with a good /r/ sound. If the kid picks a splat card he/she must put back all of their words into the center pile. As they put the cards back, they must say the words.
Whoever hast he most cards at the end... is the WINNER!
