Using the Fruits and Vegetables Beginning Sound Clip Cards
How you use these cards will depend on the abilities of the child you are working with. At this stage of the game, my son was able to do these almost independently and I just checked to make sure he was doing them right. I was there to help on the few occasions when he got a bit stuck.
When he first started learning beginning sounds, I would have went through each card one by one with him. If you do this, I would recommend saying the word out loud and emphasizing the beginning sound. Then ask if they know which letter on the card makes that beginning sound. This is actually a great way to begin introducing letter sounds.
This was an excellent way to assess my son’s ability to identify beginning sounds! Now that I know that he enjoys them, I will certainly be making more.
