In Beginning Sound Drop, students practice deleting a word’s beginning sounds to make new words. By focusing on and removing only the beginning sounds, students realize how one phoneme alters a word.
Students name the picture card, delete the initial phoneme of the word, and look for the picture on their boards that represents the new word. Through repeated play, phoneme deletion becomes automatic and fun.
There are 4 double-sided boards with 6 unique pictures, making it possible to practice phoneme deletion in 48 different examples.
Up to 4 students can play at once, one on each different board, and they can switch boards for extended practice. In addition, the picture cards and boards have matching icons for easy identification.
