Beginning Sound clip cards

This huge pack of beginning sound clip cards contains more than 40 initial sounds clip cards in all. Each one has a different, easily identifiable picture. Under the picture are three options of beginning letters. Kids can say out loud the name of the picture and then work to find the letter that the word starts with. This is fantastic for children who are just learning to sound out and spell words but also great for extra practice for those that may already know how to spell. These alphabet sound cards are perfect for preschoolers, kindergarteners, and grade 1 students.

Prep for this activity is super simple. First thing is to print out each of the sheets. There are 10 pages total. They all have 4 clip cards on each page. Cut each of the cards out. I like to laminate activities such as this to preserve the activity. Not only because kids are kids but because if you are using clothes pins, they will bend the paper easily.

Initial Sounds

I put the cards in a pile and have my daughter grab one at a time. We have used many different types of manipulatives, not just clothes pins. I created a list below of our favorites. When the child states the word out loud and identifies the beginning sound, the manipulative is placed on the correct letter. This is perfect for individual work, such as a literacy center.

Manipulatives For This Activity

Obviously clothes pins are fantastic for this activity. If you don’t have them or want to use something different, we have also used:

  • Pom Poms
  • Mini Erasers
  • Coins
  • Playdough
  • Rocks
  • Shopkins
  • doorables
  • Lego Minifigures

Initial Sounds Activities

These clip cards can be used for more than just kids who are starting to learn beginning sounds. They can continue to use the clip cards in activities that stem with the clip cards but extend past just identifying the beginning sound. After the child identifies the beginning letter, you can have the child write the word out on a recording sheet. The child write other words that start with the same letter. Another idea is for the student to write the word in a sentence.
