Beginning Sounds in Words

Beginning Sounds in Words

Play a beginning sound game with your child. For example, say a word and see if your child can say the name of the letter and the sound the word starts with.
Students need lots of practice identifying beginning sounds. Play games where a student or the teacher says a word out loud and another student says the beginning letter and sound of the word.
