I created an alphabet card set that uses picture/words of 3-4 syllables. Teachers can use chants when teaching the letters and sounds to help students learn them more easily. For example,
a-a-a (make the short a sound)
c-c-c (make the hard c sound)
I have included cards for all of the initial consonant sounds, initial short and long vowel sounds, and the soft and hard sounds of c and g. There are also cards that show the different spellings for the long vowel sounds and the sounds of y.
There are 39 cards in all, two on a page. Use them as your alphabet set above the whiteboard, as posters, instruction cards, or bulletin pieces. Print them on cardstock and laminuate for many years of use.
