Hot air balloon sounds

Students will practise hearing and identifying the initial sound in a wide variety of words with this fun game.

To play students select a hot air balloon (we have hidden the basket in some fairy stone clouds) and identify the first sound in the word. They can then either (option 1) cover the matching letter on their gameboard with a counter, or (option 2) record the sound they hear in a blank cloud. Choose the gameboard to suit your students needs and learning objectives.

This game is great for small group time or you could even create individual containers of clouds and balloons so the students focus on specific sounds they are having difficulty with.

Included in this pack are 3 balloons for each letter of the alphabet and 2 different recording sheets.
