Fall Beginning Sounds Task Cards
Task cards are a fantastic addition to the classroom because they are super simple to prep and store in any classroom. They also provide lots of fun, hands-on practice with important phonics skills your students are working on.
These free printable fall task cards have six images on each card. There are three images that match the corresponding letter and three that start with another letter. Kids use a chip or manipulative to cover the images that match the letter on the card.
Why are First Sounds Important?
Beginning sounds in words are super important because they are the foundation of reading and writing. In order for students to read and write effectively, they need to master letter sounds and letter sound isolation. Task cards like this are a simple way to practice these important skills.

Another way to differentiate to meet student needs is to use the cards that students need specific help with. If a child is struggling with specific letters, use those task cards to practice fluency and understanding.
