Looking for a few fun spring activities to help your kids learn their beginning sounds? These Spring Beginning Sound Puzzles are sure to do the job!
Not only will they help with exposure to letter sounds, but they also help with fine motor development as well as hand-eye coordination.
They were a perfect fit for my non-worksheets son since he saw them as a game as opposed to work.
Spring Beginning Sounds Puzzles
As I have said before, my son is not a fan of worksheets unless they have a fun element to it, and puzzles fit the bill.
His last set, the Valentine’s Beginning Sounds Puzzles were the perfect introduction to this skill, and so we are continuing with a spring set.
You can even have your students cut the puzzles for some extra fine motor skills.
Place the pieces with the images in one basket and the pieces with the letters in another.
Have your child choose a few pieces from either basket and place them on a flat surface such as a table or even the floor.
Next, have them fish for the matching pieces in the other basket.
Have them continue until they have matched all the puzzles.
Other Ways to Use The Spring Beginning Sound Puzzles
Suggestion 1: Instead of using the second half of the puzzle (the portion with the letter sound), use the first half and either magnetic letters or letter tiles to match the sounds.
Suggestion 2: If your student is already proficient in identifying beginning sounds, simply use the first half of the puzzle (the portion with the picture) and have them identify the ending sounds. All they need are letter tiles, or even give them a blank sheet of paper and stamps and have them stamp the ending sounds.
Suggestion 3: You can even try this with the middle sounds. Just pick a few cards and have them identify the middle sounds.
