Large Phonics Pack 1
McGraw-Hill Reading Wonders Series
Kindergarten Phonics Supplement
This is a pack of 13 phonics activities, 16 worksheets, and 2 games to supplement the McGraw-Hill Reading Wonders Kindergarten Series. The 5 letters included in this pack are a, m, s, t, & p.
Picture Word Match (mat, tap, sap, Sam, Pam, sat, pat, & map)
Place the decodable words and the color picture cards in a pocket chart or put magnets on the back of them. The children will blend the words to read them. They will find the picture that shows the word. Also work with the other decodable words I have included from the text that don’t have pictures (am, at, & as)
Use the decodable color picture cards for segmenting. The children spell the words with magnetic letters, letter tiles, or reading rod cubes. I use these in literacy stations.
Beginning Sound Sort
There are 26 color pictures that begin with m, 15 that begin with a, 23 that begin with t, 27 that begin with s, and 34 that begin with p. There is a sorting mat for each letter. I have also included the mats with the letter left off so that you can write the letter in to be wiped off to use for future letters. I use this activity in literacy stations.
Ending Sound Sort
There are 17 color pictures that end with m, 20 that end with t, 19 that end with s, and 17 that end with p. There is a sorting mat for each letter. I have also included the mats with the letter left off so that you can write the letter in to be wiped off to use for future letters. I use this activity in literacy stations.

This is a sorting activity in which the children color pictures, cut them out, and glue them either under ‘t’ or ‘m’ on the sorting mat. There are 2 different sets of pictures so every child won’t have the same set.

This is a beginning sound game working with the letters a, m, s, t, and p. Each child will have a game board. The children will take turns drawing cards. They will name the picture, give the letter name, and give its sound. They will then cover the letter on their game board with a white unifix cube/popcorn. If If the letter is already covered, they won’t do anything. If a special card is drawn they do as it says. The child that covers all their pieces of popcorn first wins.
