Since my oldest was in pre-K, we have been playing games with sounds and rhyming to help promote Literacy at the Dinner Table..
“What Does It Sound Like?”
While we eat dinner, someone will say a letter and everyone has to think of things we can eat that start with that sound.
“What can we eat that starts with B?”
“b, b, bananas!”
“b, b, brocolli”
“b, b, brownies”
And then my little one gets silly and says something like “b, b, books!” Hey, at least he recognizes the sound!
We will also get them guessing about their dessert. “Your surprise starts with the sound like C.”
This is a fun twist on the favorite. Instead of spying something with a color, we do it with words that have a particular beginning sound.
“I spy something that begins with the /t/ sound!”
“We Sound the Same”
This is a fun rhyming game. Someone will say a word and the next person has to say a word that rhymes with it. Easy Peasy fun!
