Feed the Hippo

Make a hippo out of cardboard (at least 30 cm high); make little fishes out of different coloured paper; write one big, printed letter on each fish (for younger children write the vowels: A, E, I, O, U).

The children should feed the hippo with letter-fishes.

As the child picks up a fish, ask him/her to recognise the letter or tell them ourselves, asking the child to reproduce the sound.
