This is a fun weekly activity that will help to reinforce those letter sounds.
This is how this works:
On Monday, when you introduce a new sound, you should have placed in a bag or box some items beginning with the sound. For example, if you are introducing the sound of /m/, you may have a mirror, a monkey, a mitten.
Start by modeling the activity, let your students know that you will be providing some clues for the items you have in your bag, and they have to guess what they are, reminding them that the items begin with the sound. For the first object you may say something like: this is something you need to look at yourself when you do your hair, etc.
That Monday students take their paper bag home with the tag stapled to the front of the bag, and on Wednesday they bring their items in the bag.
At the beginning, I call on individual students and help them to give their clues to the whole class, however, as they catch on the procedures, I pair them up, so they can take turns at giving the clues and guessing each other’s items. When they are done, I instructed them to put all the items back in their bags, and switch partners. This is by far one for their favorite activities!
Includes tags for every letter of the alphabet (6 per page) with instructions for parents.
