First Grade Phonics Worksheets and Printables

Help your child unlock the gates to reading and writing fluency with our first grade phonics worksheets. With a slew of fun themes and cute imagery, your child will love practicing first grade phonics, be it learning to read, sound out, spell, and write words that start with sh, ph, wh, and ch, or words that end in ng and ck. From consonant blends to digraphs to rhyming games, these worksheets cover all the first grade phonics bases.

Sound It Out with First Grade Phonics Worksheets

Thanks to silent letters and tricky consonant blends, phonetic fluency isn’t easy to achieve. This is particularly true for first graders, who see the reading and writing pace pick up after spending much of kindergarten learning the sounds letters make and simple sight words.

Of course, the best way to get over the phonetics hurdle is to practice. And the best way to practice is to access our vast array of first grade phonics worksheets. Using colorful, professionally designed illustrations of familiar objects, first graders quickly learn the beginning and ending consonant blends that make up such words as shoe and shadow, dish and fish, chick and check, and whale and while.

Don’t let the first grade phonics practice end with these worksheets, though. Use your daily surroundings to test your little one’s phonics knowledge. Example: Ask him to count to 10 and tell you which number starts with “th.” Or have him find five items in the house that start with “ch.” Or next time he’s watching his favorite cartoon, ask him to tell you every time he hears a word that ends with “ng.” Indeed, there are numerous interactive ways to help kids master first grade phonics.
