Beginning Sounds in Words


6 worksheets in which children need to circle the picture that begins with a given letter.


Why do you need this?

Recognising beginning sounds lays the groundwork for reading skills. These worksheets give students practice isolating and identifying initial phonemes through interactive activities.


Connecting sounds to letters and pictures reinforces phonetic awareness. With pictures of things like food, animals, and vehicles, children apply knowledge to familiar vocabulary.


How and when might you use this?

Each box focuses on a target starting sound, with a bold letter at the top for reference. Students look at 4 different illustrations and circle any pictures that start with that letter's sound. For example, when the target is "B", learners will circle the banana. This simple yet effective exercise serves as a foundational step in phonics instruction.


Use them for individual practice or small group phonics instruction.
