Preparing and Using the Bugs Beginning Sounds Worksheets
First, print the Bugs Beginning Sounds Worksheets (at the end of this post).
Second, cut out the sound bugs with the paper trimmer. You can also use a pair of scissors, the trimmer is faster.
Third, have your child sort the bugs according to the mat.
Fourth, let your child check to see if they sorted correctly.
Other Ways To Use The Bugs Beginning Sounds Worksheets
- Use the letter sound bugs cards that you have previously cut out. Have your child MATCH these cards with the letter tiles.
