A hands-on activity to practice initial sounds.
Use this teaching resource in the classroom when learning to identify the initial sounds of words.
- Print this resource on cardstock to ensure durability.
- Cut along the dotted lines to create small activity cards.
- Provide your students with the cards and a bucket of clothespins.
- Students say the word shown in the picture, determine the initial sound, and clip a clothespin on the letter that makes the sound.
This is a great way to work on those fine motor skills too!
