Making Letter Sound Cards and Activities

Have children make letter sound cards.  In this activity they choose the alphabet stickers that they want to place on the back of each letter card (printed on card stock, template available on this post).  There are several alphabet stickers children can choose from at the dollar store or Target. When they choose the stickers to make the cards they take ownership, are highly engaged and want to practice and learn all the letter -sound names.
Below are the two templates for the front of cards.
Second template.
After printing and cutting cards, have children place the selected alphabet/picture stickers on the back of the cards.  The picture placed on the back of each card must begin with the letter of the card.
Next, have children say letter name, letter sound and picture for each card.
Following the alphabet chart (template available on post), have children place the picture cards in the correct order.
This time you place some of the cards.  Children then have to find the missing cards. Have children say the letter name, the letter sound and the picture for each missing card.  Vowels are green and consonants are orange.  This can be introduced when children notice the difference in color.
Other fun activities to do at home to support children's foundational reading skills are:
Differentiating letters
Identifying beginning letter-sounds
