Community Level 2 – Familiar

Materials: None

How To Play: This activity can be used to reinforce phonemic
awareness, such as ending sounds in a word. Choose a category, such as
foods or animals. The first player says a word in the category, such as
horse. The next player says a new word in that category with the last
sound in the first person’s word, such as seal. Continue around the
circle of players in this pattern: horse, seal, lion, etc.

Plan for Success: Try a few as a whole group before beginning the activity.

Variations: You could connect the chosen category to a
variety of content areas. Change the phonemic focus to vowels,
beginning sounds, or a blend.
