Learning Letters and Sounds
Students will begin by putting their game board piece on the spot that has a star on it. Then they will roll the dice and move that many spaces on the game board.
When they land on a beginning sound picture they will say the word pictured out loud and isolate the beginning sound. Next, they will determine the letter that makes that sound.
Once they have found the letter that makes that sound, the will look for the letter on the four in a row game and cover one instance of that letter.
Students continue to roll the dice, move around the game board and cover letters until one player gets four letters in a row covered.
This is where students will need to use strategy to try to cover four letters in a row. The first player to do this will win the game!
