This product is a pack of 120 high frequency word cards. The first set of word cards has a picture included on each card. The picture and word association enhances memory.
The second deck of cards has the first letter of each word coloured to give a minimal clue to help children remember.
The third set of cards has no support and only the words displayed.
To teach a young child, begin with a few words in set one. Discuss the stimulus picture on the card and the beginning sound of the word. For example if I used the words, the, is and in.
Additionally, have some pictures of animals that you have cut out of magazines as well as the high frequency word cards that are being taught. Say a sentence such as,
"The pig is in the pen." The child can now lay out the card for the word, the, the picture of pig, the words is and in and the. Finally, the child can draw a little picture of a pen and write the letter in front of the picture.
Now, have the child read the sentence to you. This is the beginnings of reading and writing.
