This resource includes 12 beginning sound games with year-round themes. The directions for each game stay the same, so you can explain once and just switch out the games. Picture names are included for all beginning sound pictures.
Students will each need a game piece such as a mini eraser or plastic cube for this activity. They will also need a plastic spinner or a paperclip and pencil to make a spinner.
Students will start on the first space in the upper left corner of the game board. They will spin the spinner and identify the letter sound. They will identify the beginning sounds of the pictures on the trail and move their game piece to the nearest beginning sound picture that matches the letter sound that they spun. The gray shaded themed spaces are free spaces.
The first player to make it all the way around to the last space on the game board is the winner. To win the game, the player must spin the final beginning sound shown in the last space on the game board.
