Phonics Sound and Picture Sorting

Use this work to teach phonetic sounds and letter symbols.

This lesson includes:

  • 8 control charts
  • 8 work charts
  • 72 picture cards (to be sorted on to the work charts)
  • instructions
  • master word list

Picture cards are approx. 2" x 3".

The letters Q and X are not included in this material. Why?

In the English language the letter Q is almost always followed by the letter U; quilt, quit, queen. It is considered a phonogram (2 letters together that make 1 sound).

The letter X is pronounced K-S, it is 2 single phonetic sounds put together. If the X is at the beginning of a word, it makes the zzz sound (as in xylophone) or a sound like "eggs" (as in Xavier). But if it is at the end of a word, it makes the -cks sound. In the word 'Xerox' it makes both the 'z' sound and the 'cks' sound. It's a complicated concept for young children who are just learning the single phonetic sounds, so it too is not included in this material.
