These beginning sounds phonemic awareness cards are a GREAT way to help learners listen for beginning sounds with single letters, blends, digraphs, and consonant clusters! They're perfect for small groups, tutors, or at-home practice.
Phonemic awareness is an important skill for readers and writers. It’s the ability to hear individual sounds in words. And when learners can hear each sound, they begin to be able to isolate individual sounds, separate the sounds, and blend the sounds.
The goal with these beginning sounds phonemic awareness cards is to have learners listen for and identify the SOUND(S) they hear, not necessarily give the letter name(s). For example, instead of saying that spoon starts with s-p, we want learners to isolate and make the actual sounds of s & p--> /s/-/p/.
For each card, just read the prompt at the top, name each picture, then ask the learner for the beginning sound(s).
Cards Included For:
*Single Initial Consonant & Vowel Sounds
*Other Blends (tw & qu)
*PLUS Blackline Cards for all skills (pp. 52-99)
The cards can be printed so the words for each picture are on the back. To do this, be sure to open the file with the free, updated Adobe Reader. Once open, click “print on both sides of paper”, making sure you click “flip on the long edge.” If you miss this step, the answers will be upside down.
