Worksheets for preschoolers provide many different types of learning in an easily printed format.
The beginning sounds worksheets below are no exception. Each worksheet is a simple maze for the beginning sound of each letter. Simply color in the pictures that start with the specific letter to finish the maze. Start with "helping the airplane get to the airport" all the way to "helping the zebra get back to the zoo".
Most of the pictures will be easily recognizable to children. Have them name the picture out loud. This helps them to hear the sound.
All children love to color. Just bring out the crayons and children will want to be a part of it. Color pictures that begin with a certain letter? No problem... learning will take place while children simply believe they are having fun.
Free printable worksheets are a good way to teach letter sounds. These
worksheets can be used to introduce letter sounds or to reinforce the sounds
already learned. Either way, kids will appreciate the child-friendly pictures.
Each maze has four pictures that begin with the specific letter. Color all four pictures to complete the maze.
Hints for teaching letter sounds:
Keep a list of the alphabet so you can review with your child each of the letters and their sounds. When reviewing vowels, make sure to ask for both sounds of each vowel. As you keep this list, you will be able to easily see which letters need to be worked on. You will also be able to see the progress your child has made.
Write your child's name. Teach your child to listen to the sounds in their name. Have your child point to each letter and name the sound.
Children love to be involved when it comes to learning. Use a variety of learning tools and supplement with worksheets. Use alphabet blocks and flashcards. Play match games or go on a scavenger hunt for items that begin with a particular letter. Use alphabet coloring pages. Let kids cut pictures out of magazines that start with a specific letter. Use cut and paste activities.
There are many ways to keep kids engaged in learning. The more fun it is for them, the more likely they will learn. Remember to downplay any difficulties they are having and praise them when they are doing well.
