Title: Introduction to Letter Sounds

Objective: By the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify and produce the sounds of various letters.

Materials: - Alphabet flashcards or letter cards - Whiteboard or chart paper - Markers - Small objects or pictures that start with each letter sound - Letter sound worksheets or activity sheets


  1. Warm-up (5 minutes):
    • Begin the lesson by singing the alphabet song together.
    • Review the names of the letters by showing the flashcards or letter cards to the students and asking them to name each letter.
  2. Introduction (10 minutes):
    • Explain to the students that each letter of the alphabet has a specific sound.
    • Write the letter ‘A’ on the whiteboard or chart paper and ask the students if they know the sound it makes.
    • Introduce the short ‘a’ sound by saying words that start with ‘a’ (e.g., apple, ant, alligator).
    • Repeat this process for a few more letters, such as ‘B’, ‘C’, and ‘D’, emphasizing the sounds they make.
  3. Letter Sound Practice (15 minutes):
    • Divide the students into small groups or pairs.
    • Give each group a set of letter flashcards or letter cards.
    • Instruct the students to take turns picking a card, saying the letter sound, and coming up with a word that starts with that sound.
    • Circulate around the room, providing assistance and feedback as needed.
  4. Letter Sound Reinforcement (10 minutes):
    • Show the students small objects or pictures that start with each letter sound (e.g., apple, ball, cat, dog).
    • Ask the students to identify the beginning sound of each object or picture.
    • Encourage the students to practice saying the letter sound and the word together.
  5. Letter Sound Application (15 minutes):
    • Distribute letter sound worksheets or activity sheets to each student.
    • Instruct the students to complete the worksheets by coloring or circling the pictures that start with the given letter sound.
    • Walk around the room, providing guidance and support as needed.
  6. Wrap-up (5 minutes):
    • Gather the students together and review the letter sounds learned in the lesson.
    • Sing the alphabet song one more time, emphasizing the sounds of the letters.
    • Encourage the students to practice the letter sounds at home and remind them of the importance of letter sound recognition in reading.

Extension Activity: - Play a letter sound matching game where students have to match objects or pictures with their corresponding beginning letter sound. - Create a letter sound scavenger hunt where students have to find objects in the classroom that start with each letter sound.

Assessment: - Observe students’ participation and engagement during the activities. - Check students’ understanding through their responses during the letter sound practice and reinforcement activities. - Review completed worksheets or activity sheets to assess students’ ability to identify and produce letter sounds.
