After that they tackle the middle sound. We have free matching CVC clip cards for beginning and ending sounds that you can download while you're here. You'll find the links below.

Practice middle sounds and reading CVC words with these free self-checking clip cards. Since kids can check their own work the cards encourage independent learning!

How to Prepare

Download the cards below. Print off the color or black and white pages onto card and cut along the dotted lines. Fold on the gray lines to create 2-sided cards. Glue the backs together or laminate. Grab some pegs so they’re ready to use!

Using these middle sound clip cards

  • Children look at the main picture and the two letters underneath.
  • Say those sounds (for eg ‘h’ and ‘t’) and then say them again, adding the sound in the first square to the middle of the word ('h-o-t'). What is that word? Does it match the picture?
  • Try putting the next two letters in the middle ('h-i-t' and 'h-a-t'). What words do they make?
  • Clip a peg to the letter that makes the word match the picture.
  • Turn the card over to self-check the answer and to check if you read the other words correctly, too!
