Using initial consonants is a prereading strategy that your early reader will employ, and this fun matching worksheet lets them have practice discerning sounds past the initial sound to decode words properly. The visual cues will add to their sight word bases, as well as give practice in decoding words in word families and with phonetic patterns. Your child will get to say the name of the picture and find the matching word, and will be reading while they do so.
As your students progress in school, they learn new things, including reading, identifying objects and spelling words. If your students already know how to spell pretty well before beginning this exercise, then they would find it easy enough. First, ask them to identify the things pictured in the printout. If they can, ask them if they can spell the words. Then, help them circle the letters that spell out the words correctly from among the letters.
