[edit] What to do

  1. This is a quick activity to use when lining children up for lunch or a bathroom break. Before introducing the game, select one letter sound you want children to work with. For example, use the sound /p/. When you call a child to line up, replace the first sound of his name with /p/.
  2. It is time to go to lunch. Listen for me to call your name, and then you may line up. Listen closely. I am going to change the first sound of your name! Today I am going to use the sound “/p/.”
  3. Listen for your name. Pill. Puzy. Parah. Pob.
  4. Now it is your turn. Let’s all call Jan to line up. Ready. Give children a chance to call out the answer together. Very good. Let’s keep going.
  5. Allow the class to finish calling out the names.
  6. Repeat this activity every day with different letter sounds. As children progress, use blends and digraphs such as /ch/, /sh/, and /th/. (Digraphs).
  7. Observe students play the game. For students who struggle, give them help and make a note in an Activity Log.
