I designed this product for my ESL students who are having difficulty developing their literacy skills. It contains 50 different flash cards that have a cute picture to match. There are five levels of difficulty and each level is a different colour. The first level contains CVC words which assist with letter-sound knowledge. The levels then become more difficult moving onto words like 'rain' and 'flower' reinforcing the learning of blends and digraphs.
This product encourages students to look for picture clues and apply their understanding of letters and sounds to assist with identifying words. The vocabulary used in this resource includes words commonly found in beginning readers such as 'ball' and 'happy'.
My students love playing Memory and Fish with these flashcards! It is particularly useful for ESL students and students who require learning support. I like to keep this resource in my learning support box which teacher-aides and parent helpers can pick up and use straight away.
