Preparing Beginning Sound Clip Cards

It is recommended that you print these on cardstock and use a laminator prior to use. This will allow you to reuse this printable year after year!

LOW PREP! All you will have to do to prepare is cut the clip cards out. I always find it easiest to use a paper cutter. You will have this center ready to go in no time!

I love storing centers like these in plastic pencil cases with the clothespins so it is ready to go at all times.

Doing Beginning Sound Clip Cards

Students will start this activity by choosing a clip card. Students will look at the picture and say it out loud.

They will then need to get a clothespin and place it on the letter that the picture begins with.

Students will simply repeat these steps until all of the clip cards are complete

If you prefer not to use a clothespin, no problem! Choose any manipulative and have students place it on the correct letter.

Differentiating Beginning Sound Clip Cards

If you think that your students would be overwhelmed with all 60 puzzle pieces at once, start small. You can give them only one long vowel and short vowel option, instead of three. You can also break it up by having students sort through only short vowels or long vowels. As they master those, you can slowly add in more.
