Beginning Word Sounds

Beginning Word Sounds

Help children master how letters and sounds are connected! Take time to stress the initial sounds in words and point out the letters that make those sounds.
Mastering letter-sound correspondence takes time and repetition for young students. Continuing to stress the initial sound and letters of words is an important step in the process.

Beginning Sounds and Letters

Beginning Sounds and Letters

As you're reading picture books with your child, try pointing out characters or objects on the pages and note the letters they start with. For example, point to the picture of a bear and note that it starts with a 'b' sound, or the letter B.
Have students sort pictures, flashcards, items, or animals that begin with the same letter into piles. Keep it simple by only starting with a few letters (for example: a, f, n, t and b). This can be a revolving and changing activity for the first few months of school.

Early Writing practise

Early Writing practise

Support early writing by providing lots of opportunities to write. You can also encourage your child to label their drawings with the beginning sound of the word (e.g. write a "b" for a picture of a ball). The more comfortable children become with letter formation and the writing process, the more confident they will become as writers!
