Shopping for Sounds

This activity is appropriate for:
kindergarten - 1st grade / 5 - 6 years

Reinforce beginning letter sounds with this fun-to-play shopping game! Copy a page in a catalog or a store sale flyer and distribute a copy to each student. Choose an item pictured on that page without revealing your choice to the students. If you chose a “hat,” say, “I want to buy an item that starts with ‘h’!” Then invite students to search the page and guess which item you’re thinking of. When they guess correctly, write the name of the item on the board, so students can visualize the word. Tip: To eliminate confusion, go over the pictures on the page together, so that you agree on the names of the items (e.g., “hat” instead of “cap” or “box” instead of “carton,” etc.).
