Use this worksheet to practice identifying sounds. This is using the same format as the SAT 10. This can work for first or second grade, however it was designed for 2nd grade.
Many of the sounds are visually different and this activity forces students to focus on the sounds they hear- not the letters they see. My students struggle with this skill every year on the Stanford assessment and this year I feel they are more prepared for this portion of the reading. Can be done whole group or small group.
