Big Letter-Sound Cards
WOW! Big flash cards you can spell words with; and on the back, alternate spellings for each letter-sound.
Great for kids’ room walls and classroom bulletin boards. These phonics teaching materials are easy to hold up at the resource room table. Perfect for low-vision students.
You’ll get a pack of 41 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.
The back of each cards lists other spellings for the same letter-sound, with typical examples. 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.
Confusing, right? This is one of the things that makes English challenging, and is so important for Level 2 students to learn.
