I created these beginning sound muncher cards because my students love learning phonological awareness with him, but I was always running around trying to make sure I had the "right" items to feed him! Now, I have picture clues for each letter of the alphabet and long and short vowel sounds, plus any items that I find or that students might help me find just add to the fun and not the stress!
My Sound Muncher is a mini flip trash can from DollarTree. I glued some large googly eyes and it comes to life!
I laminate all the cards and put Velcro tabs on the Sound Muncher, then all the letter cards, so that it is easy to switch out the letters each time we are working with Sound Muncher.
This is not my idea, teachers have been making sound munchers for a long time. I just created cards to make it easier to create and use your sound muncher. It is a fun, interactive way to practice phonological awareness and can compliment any literacy program. Once you introduce this to the whole class, it can be used in a word work center too.
In this resource:
*Directions on how to use the Sound Muncher
*Fun A to Z Letter Cards. Laminate and put Velcro tabs on the back to stick on the Sound Muncher Sign on the front
*Letter and Picture Cards for Beginning Sounds. I included long and short vowel picture cards for a,e,i,o,u. I also included a capital and lowercase letter so students have practice identifying different forms of the letters. Laminate cards for durability.
*Sound Muncher Sign for the front of your Sound Muncher (works with the mini flip trash can)
* Printables for students to write the letter and draw things with the same beginning sound. I included two sizes and could be used in a center as well.
