This little unit is perfect for assessing beginning sounds of words. Each student is supposed to place a counter on the 2 pictures that match the beginning sound of the designated picture. For the second center, laminate and cut out each card. The students will match 2 beginning sounds and record them on the recording sheet.
The third center is a mystery sounds center. Students sound out each picture card, and record the first letter they hear in each picture. Then, they will use their new mystery word in a sentence.
