Children should be able to both pronounce the sounds associated with each of the consonants (both initial consonant and final consonant) and read a limited amount of monosyllable words, i.e. cat, men, tip, pop and mug. They should have some recognition of the (CVC) consonant, vowel consonant pattern, i.e. cat, mat, etc. This game should also be used with the "Make Your Own Reading Books" set of lesson plans.
