Robot Themed Beginning Sound Match

My daughter is currently working on beginning sounds in preschool, so after all the robot books we've been reading, I thought I would make her some robot themed puzzles.  These little robots are too cute and now I want to make robot puzzles for #allthethings.  For this activity, I decided to just focus on matching the letter (lowercase) with the picture that starts with that letter.  To make it a little trickier, I made two robots for each letter.

 When we first started, my daughter instantly recognized the clipart from the ABC charts that we have printed all over the house.  She wanted to do those ones first since she knows what those pictures start with for the most part.  She spread out the robots (in no particular order).

 I spread out the robot heads with the letters on them (again in no particular order).  She went picture by picture and said the word, sometimes really emphasizing the first sound, and then looked for the matching letter.  There is still some confusion with b, d, p, and q.  Why do those letters have to be so tricky?

Once she finished the pictures she recognized, we moved onto the set where she had to do a little more thinking and stretching out of the first sound.  I helped her identify the picture if she didn't know what it was or said the wrong word.

It got easier and easier as we had fewer cards left to match up.  She worked really hard to match up both sets of alphabet pictures and letters.  We talked briefly about the vowels making more than one sound - she isn't really there yet but I wanted her to see why both pictures were correct for a, e, i, o, u.

Some other ideas for using these puzzles:
-literacy center
-intervention group work
-putting the robots in alphabetical order
-at home practice for struggling students
-a way to pair up students (give some students the letters and some the pictures.  They have to find their match and that is the partner they will work with that day.)
