Big Letter-Sound Cards
WOW! Big flash cards you can spell words with!
Great for classroom bulletin boards, kids' rooms, and playing the word games suggested on the first card (with teaching tips) and throughout our Ready, Set, Read Curriculum.
You’ll get a pack of 46 cards, 6 x 11.5", printed on heavy paperboard.
On the front of each card is a large lower-case letter, the corresponding Alphagram pictogram, the key word, and the upper-case letter.
On the back of each card is a list of the most common spellings for the same letter-sound. Each letter represents a sound, right? But some letters represent several different sounds. And many sounds are represented by several different letters or letter combinations.
For example, the sound of long ‘i’ as in ‘ice cream’ can be spelled five different ways: ‘ie’ as in ‘pie,’ ‘e-consonant-e’ as in ‘bike,’ ‘y’ as in ‘cry,’ and ‘igh’ as in ‘light.’ The sound of long ‘a’ as in ‘acorn’ can be spelled eight different ways.
This is one of the things that makes English challenging, and is so important for students to learn. These cards make the learning fun.
