Learning the sounds that each letter makes is a crucial skill for learning to read. Also important is learning to identify the initial sound of a word.
In the next installment of my 101 Ways to Teach the Alphabet Series I am sharing a set of Alphabet Dominoes you can print and use to support your child’s letter-sound knowledge.
Playing Alphabet Dominoes is easy. Print off a set of Alphabet Dominoes and help your child find the domino with a green “start” dot on it. This is the first domino your child will lay down.
From here, have your child identify the initial sound of the picture on the domino. In the example below, the initial sound in “fish” is /f/.
Once your child identifies the initial sound, your child must find the domino featuring that letter and lay it next to the picture.
Your child will continue laying down dominoes until reaching the last domino, which will be marked with a red “end” dot.
This is what a completed set of Alphabet Dominoes will look like. Be sure to leave plenty of space to spread out the dominoes!
I have created a total of seven Alphabet Domino sets. Each set comes in both an uppercase and lowercase version. The seven sets are as follows:
- Set 1: A, E, I, O, U (the vowels)
- Set 2: A, C, F, M, P, S, T
- Set 3: A, C, I, M, P, R, S, T
- Set 4: B, D, F, G, I, L, N, R
- Set 5: D, E, H, J, L, N, U, W
- Set 6: K, N, Q, V, W, X, Y, Z
- Set 7: All 26 letters of the alphabet
