Alphabet Beginning Sounds Clip Cards
These beginning sounds clip cards make learning the alphabet a hands-on experience that also develops fine motor skills. I love that they do double duty.
They are super simple to set up and I even made them in a way that limits the amount of cuts you will need to make when cutting them out.
- Beginning Sounds Clip Cards (link to download at the bottom of this post)
- Clothespins (we like the mini clips)
- Laminator and laminating sheets (optional)
- Print the beginning sounds clip cards on cardstock for durability.
- Cut the cards apart.
- Laminate the cards, if you would like them to be more durable.
Learning the Alphabet in Preschool and Kindergarten
The beginning sounds clip cards make learning the alphabet a hands-on experience. Children will look at the picture on the card and determine which letter that word begins with. This requires them identify which sound it begins with and which letter makes that sound.
For example, the child will look at a card and see a monkey on it. They will say they word out loud and pay careful attention to the sound that is a the beginning of the word. They will notice that the first sound in the word monkey is “mmmm.” Then they will decide that the letter m makes that sound.
They will then clip the clothespin on the letter m that is printed on the right side of the card.
Placing the clothespin on the card is also a good way for children to get some extra fine motor practice as well.
