Pronouns were giving Andrew a hard time, so I thought I would come up with a station activity to reinforce that “he” was for boys and “she” was for girls.

This is a super basic activity to set up yet was one of the more challenging for Andrew. I set out a red plastic bouncy ball (the “apple”) for us to pass back and forth 10 times. A red balloon would also work well for this activity and you could make it as big or . . . → Read More: Pass the “Apple”
Including short books or pages of books is a great station activity in any My Obstacle Course.
