Short A Photoshoot

Help your kid practice vowel sounds by challenging him to find things that have a short A sound in this cool nighttime scene. First he'll look through Officer Ice Cream's special X-ray camera, and then he'll take snapshots of all of the items he spots whose names contain short A sounds. This game helps children detect vowel sounds in words, even when they don't see the words spelled out, for truly excellent phonics practice!
