These Sound Mazes are perfect for helping beginning readers isolate the initial sounds in words. With a focus on mouth articulation, these pages can be adapted for any setting.

30 printable mazes: Includes consonant sounds, short vowel sounds, and digraphs (-th, -sh, -ch)

The student will...

1. Begin at the the word “Start.” Draw the child’s attention to the mouth articulation for the featured sound. Ask questions, such as, “Does this sound use the lips or the tongue? Does it use the front of the tongue or the back of the tongue? Is the sound loud or is it quiet and whispery (voiced or unvoiced)?”

2. Identify each picture and say it aloud.

3. Stretch each picture word and determine whether the initial sound in that word matches the isolated sound you are currently focusing on.

4.If the picture word begins with the selected sound, instruct him/her to either draw a line or place a dot on that box.

5.Proceed through the maze until you reach the corresponding letter.

Please note: Movement in the maze will be vertical or horizontal only. Your child will not travel diagonally through the maze.
