These print-and-go pages are designed to fold into boats while working on articulation and verbs. Fold pages into boats after practicing each word on the page a designated number of times. After boats are completed, test them out in a shallow tub/bin of water or in a sink. You may also wish to send students home with their completed boats with instructions to float them with their parents/guardian while practicing the words. Keep in mind, the origami boats typically only hold up for one or two voyages in water.

Make sure to select β€œfit to page” when printing. Check the print preview to make sure the edges of pictures are not cut off. I strongly encourage you to print out the the preview sample page to make sure the activity works for you before purchasing! With practice, you can get the fold down pretty quickly! If you prefer to learn the fold by watching a video, PSST Let’s Talk posted a "how to" video on YouTube. :)

**Please note: You will need to master the folding technique rather than relying on students to learn the fold. It is a slightly complex fold that may be frustrating for younger students with poor fine motor skills.
