Initial Phoneme Matching

Author: Megan Leece

At the conclusion of this lesson students will be able to:

1. Match 3 pictures with the same initial phoneme to a set of 3 key row phonemes (9 total) across 5 trials. 

Students will use Lakeshore Learning's Beginning Sound iPad app to practice initial sound identification. This corresponds to Common Core Standards in the area of Reading: Foundational Skills Kindergarten level 2d: 

Isolate and pronounce the initial, medial vowel, and final sounds (phonemes) in
three-phoneme (consonant-vowel-consonant, or CVC) words.* (This does not
include CVCs ending with /l/, /r/, or /x/.)
