The printable is ideal for 1st graders to learn or review the letter sound.

A printable letter H sound worksheet for 1st grade students. There are 12 black and white images of items, and kids need to sound each word out and identify which syllables contain an H sound. Kids will mark an X in the box representing that syllable. There is an image of a beehive, hula hoop, dollhouse, grasshopper, lighthouse, hedgehog, fire hydrant, seahorse, forehead, neighborhood, fishhook, and doghouse.

Kids will identify which syllable (or syllables) in each word contains an H sound. 

For example, children will be shown an image of a hula hoop. Underneath the image will be 3 boxes, each representing a syllable.

They will need to sound the word out and decide in which syllable(s) they hear an H sound. Kids might find it helpful to clap while saying each syllable.


Since there is an H sound in the 1st and 3rd syllable, kids will put an X in the 1st and 3rd boxes below its image.
