An early pre-reading skill is to be able to identify a word's onset (the initial sound in the word) and link it to the appropriate letter symbol.
The ABC pictures matching card game in this file helps young students practice and hone this skill without giving them the sense that they're being drilled.
This deck of cards contains a letter and picture for every letter of the alphabet (for a total of 52 cards) and can be used in at least three ways, including:
1. As a simple picture/letter matching game at a literacy center
2. As a memory game
3. As a card-draw game (instructions are provided in the file)
The deck also comes in two versions: In the first set, the capital and lowercase letters on each letter card are the default black color. In the second set, the letters are color-coded to match the dominant color in their corresponding picture. Some pictures have similar colors, which means that the color-coding doesn't fully give away the answer - it simply narrows down the player's options. (Conveniently, this set also helps students develop color recognition and matching skills.)
Tip: For optimal durability and aesthetic appeal, print out the desired card set using colored printer ink on card stock. Laminate and cut carefully around the outer lines. Adjust settings such as scale and "fit to page" to increase or decrease the size of the cards.
