As an educator of emergent readers, you can never have too many tricks up your sleeves and ways to teach BEGINNING SOUNDS. At one time or another throughout the whole year, I always have an intervention student who is struggling to learn letter sounds. Knowing these sounds automatically is key for a student to learn to read. So check out this fun and novel way that your students can practice this skill.

Included with this product you will find 14 different game boards, both in color and black & white versions for your printing preferences. You will also get a set of mini letter flashcards, (both capitals and lowercase) in color and black & white too. Print these off on the paper of your choosing. I always copy these activities on card stock, and then laminate for extra durability.

I often use these for small group instruction but they can be used in a large group as well. I use the letter deck (capital or lowercase) of my choice and put them face down in a "draw pile". Use whatever you would like for your students to cover pictures. I use brightly colored power magnets and put the game card on top of a cookie sheet, but you could use anything you have, such as poker chips, Unifix Cubes, or even have your students "x" out the correct picture with a dry erase board. I usually play until time runs out. However, you can try to have your students complete a row horizontally, vertically, or cover the whole board. Since my students all have the same board, it really makes no difference.

For more great activities on beginning sounds, and other emergent reading skills, check out the following before you check out. I find you can never have enough different activities for this age group.
