I’m always trying to think of new ways for little learners to practice their beginning sounds. Since Halloween is quickly approaching, I made this Boo Beginning Sounds Game for them to have a fun new way to practice their sounds.
THIS ACTIVITY WORKS WELL WITH
I’ve been playing this game for years with my kids and it’s always a favorite, We’re just putting a Halloween spin on it today.
To play the game, all you need to do is download the printable at the bottom of the post. Cut out all of the squares and laminate so you can play the game over and over again. You will also need some kind of container to put the cards in. I used a Halloween themed fortune cookie box I had in my stash from years ago. I believe it’s from Michaels but you can use anything you have on hand.
This game can be played with one student or many. You will put all of the cards into the container and shake them up. Have a student pull out a card, look at the letter, and say the sound it makes. If playing alone, choose another card and repeat. If playing with other students move to the next person to take a turn. There are also some cards that say BOO! If a student chooses a BOO! card, they say BOO! and put all of their letters back in the container and it’s the next player’s turn or they can start over again if playing alone.
There are both uppercase and lowercase letters. You can choose to use them both or just one set, the game will work the same either way.
My little friends just love playing this game and said, “So basically you are saying BOO! and scaring all of the letters back into the container?” YES, EXACTLY!!

Thank you so much! My son has gotten much better at reading letter sounds since we started playing this game. The ghosts remind him of the Boo characters in the Super Mario games, so no need to save for Halloween.
