Consonant Sounds Activity

How to teach Consonant Sounds

Using the Consonant Sounds Activity, students use the ice cream cone letters and scoop picture cards to identify beginning consonant sounds of words.

Being able to identify the beginning sounds helps students read and write words. This activity gives them practice using common words that they will encounter in their reading.

 Choose a sorting mat. Most consonant letters have 5 picture scoops to match, while some have 2, 3, or 4. Teacher selects which sorting mats for student to use to help for a more self-correcting activity. Students sort the ice cream scoop pictures onto the letter ice cream cone by listening to the beginning consonant sound.
