Product Description
Initial Consonant Picture Cards
This product came about because I needed picture cards to use with my small group reading and word work activities. I really didn’t care for the commercial products and the pictures they used so knowing that I could find cute clip art on Tpt, I developed my own.
This product contains clip art images for beginning consonant letters. I use this with kids who need letter sound identification. One activity I do is sound sorts. I use two consonants that produce contrasting sounds so that kids can hear the difference and also see the difference in how their mouth forms the sound. I use little hand held mirrors so that when kids make the sounds they can see how their mouth looks. I use a white board and I make a t-chart, starting with a field of two letters. I distribute picture cards to the small group, as I do I name the picture, slowly stretching out the beginning sound i.e. “ball bbbb-all ball”. Once I have distributed the pictures for both letters I am targeting, I show the t-chat, name the letter and sound. I ask each child to take one picture from their pile to match it with the letter. They must name the picture, say the sound, and add it to the t-chart. I usually start with 4-5 pictures of each letter per child. As follow-up, they can use the black and white set, cut them out and then glue them to a t-chart.
For more of a challenge, I use three letters and the matching picture cards.
Two sets; color and black and white
To store I recommend a 3 x 5 file box with alphabetic dividers. I would print the color copy on card stock, laminate, cut. For the black line set, I would hole punch and keep in a binder with alphabetical dividers so they could be on hand. Most of the letters have 12 pictures.
