I am always looking for a simple activity that I can use with my Kinders to practice phonics skills during guided reading. I also try to give them experiences that can build their fine motor skills. I created this activity to give my students independent practice with initial sounds using laundry clips to "clip the sound," thus building their fine motor skills in the action of clipping. I created this product with pictures of animals. I teach mostly ESL children, and it is often a struggle to give them pictures where the students can name the picture. I feel like animals are ones that children can easily identify the word. Please note that I did not include a picture for the letter x...this was designed for beginning sounds and there are only animals that end in the /ks/ sound so I did not include them.
Please let me know any questions that you may have! I am always happy to help in any way that I can.
