Sound Cards

I made a set of sound cards last weekend to help children in the first stage of the "Sound Game". We try to play the sound game every day, but I'd like to have a work with which they can explore beginning sounds independently. I grouped contrasting sounds together and separated them into 4 baskets: "s,a,m,r,o,t"- "c,i,b,n,e,g"-"l,u,d,f,h,y"-"g,j,k,p,q,v,z,w". (A child would have to be familiar with the sandpaper letters of each group before they could do this work). I haven't made a control chart for them yet, but am planing on doing so. In the meantime, they can ask a friend to check their work.

To work with them, a child places the letter tags at the top of the rug or table, mixes the cards, and then matches the initial sound of the word with the letter it belongs.

They are available for you to download here: sound cards.
