Product Description
Beyond ABC Picture Cards

These cards show pictures and spellings for many of those “other” sounds that letters and letter combinations make in English!

We all know that learning just the 26 letter sounds is not enough for children to solve many common words. The cards display the 28 most common additional sounds and spellings including R vowels, W vowels, diagraphs, and more.

Just like with standard alphabet cards, you can use these cards to give children a word that helps them remember the sound that a specific letter or combination of letters can make.

Each card features:
The letter printed in a clear, manuscript font
A picture that clearly represents the sound
The picture name with the sound highlighted

Use the cards to introduce the sounds.

Post the cards as a reference as children are reading and solving words.

Refer to the cards as you coach children who are actively solving a word in context.

Guide children to become independent word solvers.
