Provide the cards (there are 2 cards on a page; each letter has 5 pictures and there are 3 correct pictures for each letter EXCEPT for the letter x, which only has 2 correct pictures) and either clothespins or counters to cover the correct pictures which begin with the sound that matches the letter on the card.
|the work station is ready|
|use either clothespins (top card) or counters (bottom card)|
One of my reading groups played this activity this week. They have mastered all beginning sounds, but we stepped it up a little for them. After they covered the pictures, they grabbed a dry erase marker and a sentence strip board (found in the dollar section at Target!) to write a sentence using at least one of the pictures from each of their cards. Here's some of their "work."
