As our little learners get better with their sound identification abilities, we can begin teaching them ending sounds. Clip it cards is amongst the favourite ending sounds activities.
These clip it cards focus on the ‘ending sound’ of a word. This gives the child an opportunity to practice ‘ending sounds’.
There are 72 clip cards. Each card has a picture and three possible ending sounds. Clip the correct one from those three sounds.
Since there are only three sounds to pick from, it makes it much easier for our little learners to identify it.
I have not included digraphs or blends for these ending sounds activity. This pack covers ending sounds from a-z. This pack will be ideal for preschool and kindergarten.
Print the sheets on card stock and laminate them for durability. If that’s not possible then at least print them on 100GSM A4 sheets like the ones I use sometimes.
Anything less that this will not be able to hold the clips. Clip cards are fun. Children look forward to this activity in my class. This activity also helps my little learners work on their fine motor muscles which are important for writing.
You can use clothespins for this activity. You can find some cute clips here.
In case you do not have clips or pegs, you can try placing these letters on the cards. I really like these letters since there are 100’s of activities that can be done with these. I bought them from here.
I do not use paper clips for this activity since they are sharp.
These cards will make it easier to isolate and identify the ending sounds.
One little trick that I like to follow with kids is to stretch the ending sound a bit. I usually try it with the kids first and then have them do it.
For the clip card ‘cheek’, I stretch the ‘k’ so that it is isolated and easily picked by the child. After doing this for sometime, the child gets it.
After this activity, you can try this pack of worksheets which focus exclusively on ending sounds.
