How To Use The Mitten Beginning Sounds Activity:

For this phonics activity, beginning readers will pick a mitten letter card and identify the letters on it. Next, they will say the sound(s) that letters make. 

Fine Motor Skills

Then, your children will sort through the mitten cards with the pictures on them and find the one that has a picture that begins with that sound. 

When they find the correct picture card, your kids will connect the two cards together using plastic links. 

Fine Motor Activity

For example, your students will select the letter Pp mitten card. Next, they will sort through the cards until they find the picture of the penguin. 

Initial Sounds Activity

Your beginning readers will then connect the letter Pp mitten card and the penguin mitten card together using plastic links.
