Pool Noodle Color Words is designed for use with children with cognitive and intellectual disabilities as well as children working on improving their visual perceptual skill development.

Materials Needed:
One 10-12 inch piece of pool noodle per child
A serrated knife to cut the noodle with (also known as a bread knife)
Sentence strips to write the words on
A thick, black permanent marker
Brightly colored cardstock or index paper
Book pockets for the back of the sentence strips to store the letters in (you could make your own by cutting a piece of paper to size and folding down the edges before you glue it)
A laminator (optional)

Technical Specifications: 

1. Write the words on the sentence strips.

4. Slice a strip open on the top of the pool noodle long enough for your sentence strip to fit inside of it, but not so far that you cut all the way through the pool noodle. The author cut two VERY thin slices out of the noodle (to make it larger hole) so that it wouldn’t be so hard for the little ones to slip the paper in and out of the opening.
