Initial Sound Center

Initial Sound Center

This Initial Sounds Center is a perfect center for any Reception or Year 1 classroom! At the center, students clip the letter on the clothes pin to the picture with the matching beginning sound. The beginning sounds sheets are included in colour and black & white. To organise this center, I print each letter chart with a different coloured background and then laminate. Using a different coloured marker for each clothes pin set, I write lower case letters from a to z. Each set is put in a plastic ziploc baggie. I use different coloured markers for each set of clothes pins so that students do not mix up their clothes pins. The pictures for initial sounds are as follows: a - astronaut b - boat c - car d - duck e - elf f - flower g - guitar h - helicopter i - iguana j - jar k - kite l - lamp m - money n - necklace o - otter p - pig q - queen r - rocket s - sun t - tape u - umbrella v - vegetables w - window x - x-ray y - yarn z - zipper
