I purchased your Phonics - Letter Sounds Mini Mega Pack - Phonics Resources a while back, which included the letters A, M, S, T, I, D, R, O, and G. You have since added more letters (individually, not part of a bundle). Is there another bundle you plan on adding to include those letters, or are they only available for individual purchase right now? I LOVE these pages, and they work so well with my kindergarten intervention groups, but it just gets kind of pricey to buy them all separately! Thank you! :)

I'm a little curious about the recording worksheet that you mention comes with the packet. Is it for the students to record their work? Is it for the teacher to record who has completed the cards? The place value cards look really great! I'd just appreciate a little more in the preview department before purchasing to make sure it's right for my class. Thanks.

Hi! I bought the bundle of these and I love them! Are you planning on making books for any of the word families you did not do? Also, you have "sped" in your ed booklet. I actually bought all the same clip art that you used so I could make a classroom use flip chart to introduce the family. I like using the same pictures because then they can do the books more easily. I can't find sped. Do you happen to remember what set it was in? Thanks!
