I love drawing games… don’t you? When I saw this super easy drawing picture game (Letter Sounds Pictionary) from Childhood Beckons I knew it would become a family favorite.
Letter P was about to take center stage. Perfect! Set-up was a breeze. I grabbed crayons and paper. (Although chalk or drawing boards would work too.)
I told M and M to think of P words but not to say them out loud. (The second part of this step was trickier than you might think. )
Big M went first and drew pizza. Nicely done!
Little M had a little trouble (I think). She is actually a wiz at letter sounds so I didn’t make any accommodations for her. Next time I think we’ll do a run down of P words before we start, just to be sure she has a few under her belt. Of course Little M tends to do whatever she feels like. She may have known the words she was choosing didn’t start with P… we’ll never know.
There were a few moments that Big M gave his sister a hand. (Oh, I live for those moments.)
Tips (to maximize learning): 1. Take turns drawing pictures (you can play too!) 2. If there is a picture that everyone is having a hard time guessing ask for a clue.
