Identifying letters and sounds is hard work – but so fun and rewarding! While we are learning the sounds that letters make, we always need some fun practice! This alphabet magnets beginning sound match uses tools found in most homes or classrooms, and is a fun, quick and simple way to work on beginning sounds!
Alphabet Magnet Beginning Sound Match
We have several sets of alphabet magnets in my classroom. This set (similar to this one) has lowercase letters and makes the vowels red. Sometimes that is helpful when we get to word building because my kids always remember that to make a word they need vowels, so it really highlights their importance!
I grabbed my set of letters along with a cookie sheet (I have several that I have grabbed from the dollar store!) and the game board (below) and my group set off to work on those beginning sounds!
There are various pictures on the game board, so what we did was first lay out the letters. Then we took turns picking them up one at a time and saying their name and sound. After saying their sound, we searched for the picture that matched.
“n says /n/ – what picture starts with /n/? Yes, net starts with /n/!”
After identifying the picture, we stuck the magnet on! I love how it sticks there and doesn’t get knocked off or shifted while we keep playing! If you are playing at home, your fridge would work just as well – just use magnets or tape to hang the game board and play a few letters throughout the day!
