Practice phonological awareness skills in a fun, engaging way!
Initial Sounds clip cards can be used for an independent or partner center/activity. Students have fun matching the final sounds of the words (k/c may be interchangeable at this stage, as they make the same sound) as they practice key phonological awareness skills to help them prepare for reading. Great for classroom centers, special education classrooms, speech & language classrooms, and home school classrooms.
This set includes 28 cards in full color or 28 cards in B&W. It has 2 cards for each of the 15 most common consonant letter sounds (c & k are combined as it is the same sound).
Pictures for vowel sounds represent the short sounds of the words, as these are the first ones students need to recognize. Commonly mistaken sounds, incorrect placement of sound, and initial sounds are used as confusers to sure students are able to do the skill, not just rule them out.
