Speech Activity of the Week: Initial Sound Blackout
[Source: Stay At Home Educator]
I LOVE sorting activities to reinforce letter identification and sounds. Such activities have been wildly successful with my preschoolers in reviewing those important beginning reading skills. Sometimes, though, it is appropriate to bring out something completely new, such as this game Initial Sound Blackout.
I had on hand several sets of clips art pictures that I thought would work perfectly for this activity. I spend an afternoon coloring each one (you might want to just invest in a color version of such a set), cutting them out and gluing them onto sheets of colored paper. Of course, I laminated each on for added durability.
