This is the cutest set of color flash cards that are perfect for small little hands. This set matches my ABC Wall Frieze color cards. I suggest hole punching either the top center or top corner of each set and affixing a one inch binder ring to make it easier for little hands to maneuver OR if you have access to a book binding machine, you could also bind the top of the cards as well. We sing to the tune of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star"
Since little ones will need experiences with flipping the cards to improve fine motor skills and coordination, I would model several mini-lessons which solely focus on the skill of flipping the cards on your cue, I personally insist that students point to the alphabetic representations as we sing or chant the letter name and then point to the rebus icon as we chant/sing it's name. Student begin in an echo manner including gestures and after a couple of weeks we move on to them chorally singing or chanting with me as they point to the appropriate symbols.
This set of flash cards is perfect for small group literacy instruction, tutoring, pull-out, push-in, RTI and literacy workstations as well. I also send a set home to partner with parents and make them accountable in their child's academic accomplishments and merits.
*****This set does include beginning onsets that aren't all "CLEAN" sounds. The set includes digraphs and blends. This is the art that I selected for this set, thus my suggestion is to use the blends and digraphs as "teachable moments" as you move deeper into your phonics instruction during the school year.
