This worksheet package focuses on the short vowel ‘a’ as in apple.
Great for beginning learners to practice their letter formation, sounding out skills, and phonemic awareness.
Includes 4 pages:
Page 1 – Trace, sound out, match – Students should be guided to letter name and sound out as they trace each letter and match it to the picture that begins with the same sound. (ex. a says /a/ for picture matching keyword)
Page 2 – Letter Tracing – Students practice tracing each letter and should repeat the story as they trace (ex. a says /a/ for apple)
Page 3 – Letter Formation – Students practice their own letter formation by tracing the letter then continuing along the row forming their own letter. Placing a green dot where the letter begins can be helpful for students. This page can be saved for students to return to and continue their letter formation.
Page 4 – Coloring page – Students color only the pictures on the page that begin with the sound in the instruction box.
We recommend observing the student/child as they work through this worksheet package to ensure proper letter formation and that the correct vowel value is given when sounding out.
