Your students will love filling up an aquarium while practicing their sounds!
This activity was designed to be a simple, no-prep activity to target articulation tperfect any time during the year (it would compliment ocean, beach, or pirate themes). It is a simple cut and paste craft! Perfect for k-5 (some younger students may need cutting assistance, depending on fine motor abilities).

I also included a guide that can be used as a coloring page too! Table of contents/page guide included to make finding the page you need easy!
None! Print & go!
Print out an aquarium page for every student in the group (page 4 the download). Print out the sound page with the target sounds needed for each student. I have the students color the aquarium first so that they are ready to put the fish, seashells, and other fun objects in (or you can have them color it in between turns to keep their hands busy). The student will color and practice each target word on the fish/objects. The student will cut out the fish/objects and practice the words again.
The student will glue each object in the aquarium and practice the words one more time! Get over 100 trials easily!
