Gather a stack of twenty-six 4 x 6 or larger index cards, and write a different letter of the alphabet in the upper right hand corner of each.
On each card, draw or paste drawings of three to five pictures which begin with that sound.
Laminate cards and store in box.
For quick review of sounds and vocabulary, pull a card from the file and begin describing the pictures without naming them. After students guess each object, ask them to name the initial sound. You may also allow students to describe objects pictured on cards.
