Literacy Activities
Smash Trash and Make a Splash

  • Pour a small amount of water in paper cups and place them on a tray. 
  • Let the children take a sip, smash the cup, make a splash, and chant, "Smash and splash! Smash and splash in the trash! Smash and splash!”
  • Have the children crash and bash two cups together to make a splash and say, “Crash and bash to splash.”
  • Let the children smash their paper cups, stash them in the trash, and chant, "Smash! Smash! Smash the trash!" 
  • Comment on words that rhyme: bash, smash, crash, clash, and splash rhyme

Dash around to smash trash

  • Scatter trash (e.g., egg cartons, cardboard boxes) and let the children dash around to smash the trash and stash the trash in the trash.
  • Chant, “Smash! Smash! Smash the trash! Smash the trash in the trash!”
  • Ask the children if smash and bash rhyme and nod to indicate that they do.
  • Ask the children to think of a word that rhymes with trash, such as splash, dash, flash, and crash

Read a text to the children

  • Display the Splash the Trash target text (see below) large enough for children to easily see.
  • Read the text to the children and point to each word in left-to-right sequence.
  • Read the text again and invite the children to repeat the phrases.
  • Ask the children to think of a word that rhymes with splash and provide suggestions as needed.

Recognize rhyming words

    • Splash, smash  (shake head yes)
    • Trash, sash (shake head yes)
    • Bash, truck (prompt by shaking head no)
