Age: Prior to this game the child should have knowledge of words, pictures and associating with them.

This can be done with one or a few children. It can be a formal lesson that takes place at a table or a mat, or in can be done casually during the course of the daily activities (but of course, do not interrupt a child who is at work with another activity).

Step 1: For the child's introduction to the game, make the first clues as obvious as possible: "I spy some thing that starts with 'b' that you are holding in your hand." E.g. Ball

Step 2: Other ones to begin with are: "I spy something you are sitting on that starts with 'ch'," or "I spy someone who just came in the room whose name starts with 'j'."

Note: Use sounds and phonetics.
