Summer break is coming and that means playing outside until all hours of the night! It’s hard to keep bedtimes in place when it’s finally cooler outside and the kids are enjoying the fresh air. Our favorite thing about summer nights are catching fireflies. So I created these free Firefly Initial Sound Clip Cards to help us practice initial sounds and letters and remind us of our summer fun. The firefly theme is perfect for the warm summer months!

Firefly Initial Sound Clip Cards
One of my favorite memories as a child is catching fireflies in the dark. This didn’t happen very often, but seeing the twinkling fireflies in the summer sky is almost magical. This firefly-themed, initial sound activity includes 26 clip cards and prep is so easy!
To organize the activity, put all of the clip cards in a small basket or tray. Pull a card out and play!
How to Play
The object of this activity is to find the initial sound of the picture in the jar and match it to the correct lowercase letter on the card.
The pictures on the firefly jars are easy to identify for little learners. It may even seem silly to the kids as you introduce the initial sound clip cards.
The directions are simple! Say what the picture is out loud and listen for the sound you hear at the beginning of the word. Stretch out the word if needed. After identifying the sound, identify the letter that the sound makes. Clip the clothespin to that matching letter.
To make this activity self-correcting and completely independent, write the correct answer on the back of the clip card. That way, the kids can play and double check their answers when they are done!
