Learning the alphabet and how recognize letters is the first step to literacy, but true reading fluency doesn’t take shape until children master phonics. Understanding the sounds each letter makes and learning consonant blends are among an array of topics covered in our printable phonics worksheets. With professionally designed graphics and bright colors, your child will eagerly want to tackle such phonics worksheets as words that start with “sh” and end with “ck,” as well as matching rhyming words and identifying words that start with “F” and other letters.

Most parents probably don’t remember that there’s a lot that goes into creating a competent learner—it’s certainly not an overnight process. One of the most critical steps along the literacy journey is teaching young learners how words correlate with sounds, which is known as phonological awareness.
Our phonics worksheets are a great tool to use to help your child develop this vital skill, as they cover such concepts as rhyming words, the sounds each letter makes, and beginning and ending consonant blends. And with various puzzles, games, and hands-on activities (like cut-and-paste rhymes), your child will never tire of practicing her phonics.
Beyond our supply of dozens of phonics worksheets, consider using your child’s everyday surroundings to speed up the learning process. For example, sit her down with her favorite coloring books and see if she can identify all the objects that start with “B” as she flips the pages. Or next time you go for a walk, point out various objects you see like “dog,” “tree,” and “car,” and see if she can come up with a rhyming word for each. When she does, you’ll see her eyes light up and know she’s well on her way to phonics proficiency.
