24 SATPIN Clip Cards (kindergarten Phonics Activity)

Satpin clip cards for phonics and fine motor skills

These cute SATPIN clip cards are a lovely way to help practice and develop those phonics skills.

There’s 4 cards for each letter – s, a, t, p, i and n, and your little ones will need to segment the picture’s word to hear just the initial sound – then use their letter recognition skills to choose the correct letter.

The pictures included are:

For s:

  • star
  • sun
  • snake
  • seal

For a:

  • ant
  • astronaut
  • apple
  • arrow

For t:

  • tree
  • tortoise
  • tap
  • turkey

For p:

  • pig
  • pan
  • pen
  • penguin

For i:

  • igloo
  • iguana
  • insects
  • ink

And for n:

  • net
  • nail
  • numbers
  • narwhal

Not only do they get to practice their phonics and letter recognition with these cards, the squeezing of clothespins is also a wonderful way to develop their fine motor skills (and maybe to get in a bit of practice for helping to hang out the washing!)

These clip cards are also very simple to prepare, just print off, cut out (and laminate if you want) then spread out on a table with some clothespins – done!

So why not grab these phonics clip cards and help them become better readers!
