Initial Sound in a Word Find and Colour

Initial Sound in a Word Find and Colour


5 worksheets in which children need to look at a picture and then work out what the beginning sound in the word would be, they then find and color that 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?

Students will look at each picture, identify what the object is, and determine the first letter that makes the beginning sound of the word. They will then locate that letter among the letters listed and color it in. These worksheets can be used individually or in small groups as a fun way to practice phonics skills. The PDF worksheets work well for whole class instruction, independent practice, homework, or morning work. This resource provides a multisensory approach to build phonics skills using visual, auditory, and fine motor practice tracing and coloring the beginning letter.
