Phonics Baskets

I am always looking for ways to enhance literacy in a fun way for preschoolers and foundation children. This fun game from 'The Imagination Tree' immediately grabbed the children's attention through seeing all the toys spread across the tray. 

Finding sounds that I wanted the children to practice I wrote the phonemes on some card and asked them what sound they were. I then presented them with the toys and they had great fun dividing the toys into the correct basket. The concentration was visible as they were saying the sounds to themselves!

This activity could be extended depending on the abilities of the child. For example presenting objects starting with digraphs such as 'sh' and 'ch' or through asking the children to find their own objects.
