This packet contains 26 mouse shapes, each with a capital and a lowercase form of a different letter and 156 small picture cards each representing a sound. There are 6 sound pictures for each letter. The cards in the document are arranged so that you can easily print and use them in the order that you introduce letters or as needed by students who require extra practice with letters and sounds. I have also included 26 smaller mouse letter cards to be used with a pocket chart if you wish.
Print and laminate the materials that you need, when you need them. If a matching card gets lost, no problem just print out a new one. You don’t have to go to the store and buy a new set or throw a game away. That is the beauty of printable games. To save on ink, print with your printer on the grayscale setting.
For a more active game, you could also post the alphabet bear shapes around the classroom. Pass out the sound cards and have students find the matching letter mouse. This would be a good beginning of the year introduction to writing around the room.
This initial sounds game was created by Learning Harbor Resources for Teachers - Cheryl Litton and Greg Litton
