Initial Consonant Sounds from B to G
In this update to our Kindergarten English eWorkbook, we've released a couple hundred exercises focusing on initial consonant sounds from B to G. These exercises touch on 14 of the Common Core standards in Kindergarten ELA for Language and Reading Foundational Skills.
In this module we present basic single-syllable sight words are along with vocabulary images and individual letters to introduce students to the initial phonetic sounds of these letters.
Matching Upper and Lower Case Letters
Throughout this module, the initial consonant sounds are represented with both upper and lower case letters to help reinforce the phonetic equivalency for students.
Once student mastery of both letters side-by-side is established, vocabulary words are presented both capitalized and lower case to further develop this concept. Identification exercises between words and individual letters with matching and mismatched cases help round out the skills for alphabet literacy.
The First Elements of Spelling
Our final step of initial consonant sounds is also the first step of learning to spell words phonetically. We present students with the same vocabulary sets used throughout this section, along with audio reinforcements, and prompt students to provide the first letter to spell the word. Positive reinforcement for correct responses from the student shows the entire word spelled correctly and builds on the Kindergarten skills of literacy.
