Beginning Sound Templates
The Make, Take & Teach Beginning Sounds templates are ideal for use within your classroom literacy centers or as a direct teaching activity during small group instruction. There are several ways that you can use the templates. One option is to laminate the templates, place velcro on the templates and the letters and have your students match the velcro letters to the beginning sounds of the words. Option two is to have your students write the correct letters for the beginning sounds using and a dry erase marker (you can opt to use dry erase pockets or simply laminate the templates). Of course, one of my favorite ways to use the templates is to place them on cookie sheets and have students place magnetic letters in the circles for the beginning sound of the word. When you download this activity you’ll receive 15 colorful beginning sounds templates. Note: The templates correspond to the letter order presented in commonly used reading series.
