Alphabet Chart: Alphabet Charts - Initial/Beginning Sounds Posters/Charts
26 x full-page alphabet charts/posters with 5 words to each page, with matching images.
Includes cover page for you to display with your posters.
Please note that long vowels sounds are not included.
Updated November, 2015.
All vocabulary used on each page represents single, initial sounds. There are no blends or soft sounds like celebration or gesture. I believe that these examples confuse young children and send them the wrong message. The 'x' sound is represented with words that contain the sound and not the letter. Please refer to the image of the 'x' poster.
These word bank posters could be used in centers for students to construct words using magnetic letters, dough, magazine letters, write on chalkboards, write the room, type on the computer, or write in rainbow colors.
Display the posters near the front of the room and use for whole class modeling of spelling strategies such as isolating, segmenting and stretching words using magnetic letters. Focus on initial sounds by hearing the first sound; model how to write the sound you hear for kindergarten students.
Kindergarten students will enjoy a slow introduction to these posters and aligning each poster with your sound of the week would be appropriate.
Print off all pages in black and white to make a reference booklet for the class library or writing workstation.
