Phoneme matching gives students practice identifying a word's initial, middle/vowel, or ending sounds when given a picture. Students say the target sound and identify the images that match to correctly sort the words. Phoneme isolation and matching is a critical first step in building phonemic awareness as students build towards phoneme segmentation.
