phonic sound pouches - inspiration needed!
I have just finished making the sound pouches, I have written about them on my blog
http://jojoebi.blogspot.com/ I have 5 objects for most of them but I am stuck with the letters
n,i,q,u,v,y and z. If you already have these can you tell me what you put in them?
If you want to see the whole set and what is in them I have them on Flickr, here
Thanks for any help!
- These are positively adorable!!! I love them, and the flowers are
beautiful!! Way to go! My daughter made me a sculpey nest for "n" and
we had some miniature vases in a playmobil set for "v". A few ideas
anyway. If you can pick up some of those "toob" animal sets they have
LOTS of stuff for the sound ideas!
- I'm impressed! Can't believe you did them by hand, I'm sure I would
have had to drink a lot more than you did to get through 26 of them.
For n how about mini nailclippers? a nickle? a noodle? even a (filed
off) nail? for i an inkspot on piece of paper or fabric...I've taken
the liberty of copying all your item names, tho' I'm not into all my
language stuff yet. Your selection is pretty inspired.

You did a fabulous job with those. I love the pouches. Here are a
few suggestions for more:
i: inch, inchworm, ice cream, Ireland, iguana
n: nailfile, necklace, nose, north, notepad
q: queen, queen bee, quadrangle, quarter, quill,
u: ukelele, udder, unicorn, uniform, urn
v: veil, volcano, vest, vial, vine, vinegar
y: yam, yellow, yolk, yoke, yucca
z: zuchini, zeppelin, zinnia
I hope these help you.

- Hi Jo,
Just looked at your phonics sound pouches and they are really nice.
I made a sound box that works well for traveling, but it is not nearly
as aesthetically pleasing as your lovely pouches.
I saw that you were looking for ideas for n,i,q,u,v,y,and z...so I
went through what I have for those letters and thought I would share
what we have (I omitted the items that you already have for these
n: necklace, noodles, nightgown, nurse (plastic), napkin, net,
notebook, newt(plastic), nail clippers (baby ones)
i: icicle (plastic), ice cube (plastic), ice cream (wooden),
inchworm (wooden), iguana (plastic)
q: queen (plastic), quarter, quail (plastic), quart*
* you could keep a plastic quart container out on the day that your
child does the q pouch
u: uniform, unicorn (plastic)
v: viola, vacuum, viper (plastic)
Y: yak, yams (laminated photo)
z: zoo (wooden), zest*
*You could do "zest" on the day your child uses the z pouch by having
your child help zest a lemon and maybe adding it to something you have
to eat that day. If your pouch allows enough room for the zesting tool
to fit, you could keep one in the pouch...my sound box isn't big
enough for one.
If you would like to do a swap, I would love to do one with you. I
don't have a koala or a kangaroo and am finding those two to be the
hardest items to find.
Since I read that you don't really care for plastic, if you would want
to do a swap, I listed the items I have that are wooden in parentheses.
Well, hope that these are helpful. Please let me know if you would
want to swap.
