We use these flashcards throughout the school year. I introduce 2-3 a week, then add them to our daily FLASH. I also use these during guided reading to assess my small groups.
Each flashcard comes with two of the same sound on the page and then the explanation/chant with words on the back. The explanation comes in handy with student teachers or new teachers who are not sure of all of the "rules". (I'm not sure where all of the "rules" come from - 15 years and many different teachers, but they are on the back if you need.) I can honestly say it has helped my student teachers and myself, as well as new teachers to first grade.
**Three of our teachers also used one set of the flashcards for student led flashing. They had a student who held up the cards daily, and the kiddos did the chants as the cards were flashed.
Hope this helps someone out there!
