We start by sitting in a circle. I put a lot of small objects/toys in a bag (our purse) like a cat, dog, pen, frog, glasses, monkey, tiger, etc. Then we start singing, "Pass, pass, pass, the purse, pass it round and round. We're looking for a special sound and look at what we've found!" The purse is passed while we are singing, and the person who has the purse when the song stops gets to pick out an object. He or she will tell us the initial sound the object's name makes and letter that makes that sound. Then we start again! :0)
