Players share the photograph mats, but divide the picture cards. Each player takes a turn spinning, then checking his word cards to see if he has a picture with a beginning sound matching the letter-sound on the spinner. If yes, he places the picture card on the photograph mat that matches. Play repeats until all picture cards are matched on the photograph mats.
