Letter Roll Beginning Sounds Activity


How to teach Beginning Sounds

Using the Letter Roll Beginning Sounds Activity, students practice brainstorming and writing words that start with various consonants.

Being able to identify the beginning helps students read and write words. This activity gives them practice coming up with their own words that begin with specific letters of the alphabet. This is a perfect activity for a literacy center, small group, or guided reading.

Roll a die to land on a letter and write that letter in the box on your answer sheet (various types of writing sheets are provided). Flip over a timer to begin game play. Write down as many words as you can think of that begin with that letter. After time is up, share your answers with the group and record how many words you got correct on the score sheet. Play four rounds of Letter Roll and add up each player’s total score. The player with the most words is the winner!
