Safari Phonological Awareness Activity Pack (one that is actually fun!)

It’s finally here! After teaching these skills my first 2 years, I have created a packet that addresses tons of phonological awareness skills. The best part? The kids have a blast! In this Safari-themed packet, students identify initial sounds, blends and digraphs using BINGO, hide-and-seek, and then reinforcement worksheets.

After so much blogging about classroom lessons, I have included enough materials to make this an entire classroom lesson. Wouldn't this be a great whole group lesson for kindergartners or first graders? In this 60-page activity pack, you receive:
*28 BINGO beginning sound (lowercase) boards
*60 BINGO beginning sound word cards
*28 BINGO blends/digraph boards
*78 BINGO blends/digraph word cards
*18 blank BINGO word cards
*12 Safari Word Hunt endings
*144 Safari Word Hunt words
*2 Reinforcement Worksheets

Who doesn’t love BINGO? The kids will have a blast going on a safari sound hunt for initial sounds, or play hunting for blends and digraphs.

In the game “Safari Word Hunt,” I hide words in my therapy room or classroom. Then I read a word ending. Students must hunt for the words with the corresponding ending. If they find a different word, they must put it back in it’s hiding place.

Two reinforcement worksheets are also included. Grab your safari hats and start searching for sounds! You can find this enormous activity pack at my TPT store HERE.

Thank you for letting me share my newest creation with you!
