Colours, numbers and alphabet phonics pick and draw game

Instructions for teachers

Cut up one set of cards per class or per group of two to five students. Students spread the cards face up across the floor or table. They take turns making a sentence from the cards below and then drawing those things on the same one big picture, e.g. on some A3 paper or on the board. You could then move onto students writing and/ or saying their own sentences so that they can draw those things (on the same picture or on a new picture). When you stop the game, ask them to describe the finished drawing (orally and/ or writing a description).
