Thank you for your interest in the Beginning Sound Clip Strips pack! This material will assist you as you teach children about the beginning sounds of words.
The pack includes:
1) Thirty-one color Beginning Sound Clip Strips (for consonants, short and long vowels). The child places a clothes pin or counter on the picture that begins with the letter at the top of the strip. A dry erase marker can also be used to circle the picture.
2) Large, color picture cards and letter cards for matching words with their beginning sound (for floor work on a Montessori rug or a group activity).
3) I Know Beginning Sounds! Worksheets: A no-prep activity which the child can keep and review. The child circles or colors the picture that beginnings with the letter at the top of the column.
In his book, How to Raise an Amazing Child the Montessori Way (2006), Tim Seldin recommends a specific sequence of letters to present to the child when doing letter-sound work or using Montessori Sandpaper Letters. Following this sequence, the letters are introduced in an order that allows the child to read and spell many words with the letters he or she has learned. The worksheets in this pack correspond to that specific ordering.
5) Control Charts (correct answers) for self-correction of the activity by the child. Correct answers are circled. The grouping of letters on each Control Chart corresponds with the groupings on the I Know Beginning Sounds! Worksheets.
The purchase of one license of this product allows for single teacher, single classroom use. Please purchase multiple licenses if the product will be used in multiple classrooms or schools.
