SIMPLER: Just use the lowercase letter pegs and ask children to attach the pegs to the matching uppercase letters on the alphabet mat.
MODERATE: Use the picture cards. Ask children the names of the animals (they may need help with this) and to focus on the first letter sound. When they say the word can they hear the first sound and say what letter it is? Can they find the matching letter on the alphabet mat?
ADVANCED: Use both picture and letter sets and attempt to read the words under each letter with prompting from the picture. Can they sound out the words to check that they really do match the pictures?
SUPER ADVANCED: use only the letter cards and attempt to read the words as they are clipped to the matching beginning sound on the alphabet mat.
