Hi, this game should really be entitled “beginning blends” as it is not using single sounds which is the impression the title gives. Cheers,

Do you have a resource that is the same as this, but for beginning single sounds, not blends and digraphs?

Hi there Jennifer,

This bingo game focuses on the beginning letter (which could also be used as the beginning sound). Do you think it might be what you are looking for?
