Use worksheets for kids to help them master beginning sounds. The following worksheets have 12 pictures each. Under each picture is a blank space. Have the children write the beginning letter under each picture.

The same letter sounds are used on more than one worksheet. The pictures, however,  will change on each sheet making each printable worksheet a new challenge for kids.

This set of printables for kids is best used when children have already learned several sounds. Have them name the pictures out loud. This helps them to correctly hear the sound.

Beyond free printables, there are so many ways to reinforce learning the letter sounds.

Use alphabet puzzles. As your child is building the puzzle, have them tell you a sound for some of the letters. No need to do all 26. Just a few here and there will be enough. Let your child lead. If they can name the sound for five letters, great! Another day they can name five more.

Foam letters in the bathtub. In the tub you have a fairly captive audience. Use the foam letters to practice beginning sounds. When my children were young, one son in particular would place the letters on the wall, then when he could say the sound of the letter... he would swipe the wall making the letter fall into the tub. This resulted in tons of giggles, and lots of reinforcement for learning while having fun.

Alphabet books. Keep a small tub or basket handy with several easy reader books. Read to your child when you can but leave the book basket within easy reach. Let your child wander over on their own to explore the books. Once a child has learned several letters and their sounds, they will find it great fun to discover and point out the letters in books.

Fly swatters. I have no idea who came up with this concept, but it is definitely a winner! Place simple alphabet cards on the floor. Name a letter sound and let the kids swat the correct letter. Once you have named a sound...watch your child. You'll be able to see the moment they have spotted the letter. There is so much excitement on their face! Plan plenty of time for this activity because kids will want to play for quite a while.
