  • Just what I needed for my 1:1 who is really struggling with initial sounds

  • I cannot get this resource to print, I have tried saving it and printing direct from here, but it's not working. I would really like to send this resource home tomorrow for a child in my class to work on over the holidays.  Please can you help? TIA

    • Hi bev2147,
      Thank you very much for commenting! It's great to hear from you :) Could you let us know what is happening when you try to print, and what message you are getting, as I have checked it and it seems to be working OK. Thanks :)

  • Love this resource! I will be using the photos as choices to baseline my SEN class (Who mostly use talking devices). More resources like this would be amazing! A specific phonics area for children who use devices would be even better

      You're very welcome :)

  • This is excellent and I love the real pictures, but there are a few I can't figure out: insect in the L section, the bison/bull looks like a highland cow and for y it's not a yak but a highland cow. They are not walnuts but pecans. I have no idea what the bird for x is, and is the flower for z a zinnia? Thanks,

  • Love this resource and was about to print until I read the comment from the above user.... was the resource ever update at amend the 's' sounds - if so could I have a copy please? As always though - fantastic resources!!!

    • Hi teacher934,
      I've just checked the resource and the words for 's' are sand, seal, spaghetti, snake, strawberry and snow. Would you prefer some words with a pure 's' rather than a blend at the beginning? If you would, just let me know and I'll see what we can do for you! Thanks for commenting :)

  • I Will be using this resource with my Reception class in the Autumn ter. The aim is for them to match the initial sound to the correct pictures. This will help and enable children to discriminate and recognise initial sounds in different words.
    I would appreciate it if a similar activity could be devised with digraphs, trigraphs and split-digraphs.

    • Hi saryabegum,

      Thanks for your comment, it's great to hear from you!

      We have many wonderful resources on the Twinkl site and we do have matching cards for phase 5 digraphs, for example. I was wondering if you could provide a few more details about the resources you're looking for?
      Which digraphs, trigraphs and split-digraphs would you like the photo matching activity for?
      I hope you have a lovely day! : )

  • I will use some of these pictures with a child with speech and language difficulties for some specific visual discrimination work. I use your fabulous Twinkl resources in a lot of my games, as by the very nature of my work you need to do the same activities in many different ways. I know its picky, but from a speech and language point of view some of your vocab and pictures are not very useful, for example you use s blends rather than s words, str (strawberry), sn (snow, snake) and sp (spaghetti). S blends are some of the later sounds to develop, and for children with a speech disorder they are often not in place when they start school, and therefore tend to reduce the sounds to no, nake, bider, carf, may not recognise these pictures as beginning with the target sound. I make lots of letter sound packs and a pure s is tricky to find pictures for, to add to seal and sand you could have; soap, soup, sit, sing, seat, saw, soldier, sack. As I said, I love your resources and use them all the time, but just felt I had to share this comment with you.

    • Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. We can amend our resources so that they suit your needs. Would you like us to amend the resources for you in any way at all? I look forward to your reply. Many thanks :)

    • Hi nikkistar,
      Thank you for commenting. I have put this request through, if we're able to make it then we'll be in touch to let you know! :)

  • It's called A-Z but mine is only the sounds from s-l?

    • Hi there,

      Thanks for your comment!

      I've taken a look at this resource at it looks like it covers Phase 2 initial sounds. I apologise that the file name included A-Z and we'll be sure to update this right away.

      Would you like me to put through a request for a version which includes all alphabet sounds?

      Have a lovely day! :)

  • Early Years Literacy. A bingo version of this would be good- with a mixture of sounds per board. I like the real photographs.

  • Brilliant resource for teaching initial letter sound to my pre-school children. Lovely to see its in phonic order rather than alphabet - saves me lots of precious time!
