Fun literacy game to sort pictures by initial and/or final sound. Use to practice speech sounds or as a sort for initial and final sounds. Select the cards you want to focus on. Differentiate by playing with just initial, just final or a combination. Initial sound cut and paste follow-ups also included.
Pieces: Candy corn shaped pieces with black and white pictures on them & Mats: Use sorting mats on own, as part of a file folder game or attached to paper bags as goody bags. Or just use candy corn by itself.
Ways to Play: Search for a Sound: Lay candy corn upside down. Players each take a mat with a focus sound. Players take turns turning over a card and saying the name of the picture - stretching it like a ghost. If it matches their mat, they keep it.
Sort the Sounds: Lay out candy corn upside down. Make “goody bags” with different focus sounds. Set up the bags in a row. Each player takes a turn turning over a card, saying the name of the picture (stretching the sound like a ghost), and putting it in the correct bag.
