This is a set of 36 flashcards with bright, fun, hand-drawn images.
They show the consonant combinations that many students have problems with - sh, th, ph, wh, gh and ch (letter combinations using 'h').
Each letter combination has 1 or 2 words. Each word has a card showing just the images, a card with the word for that image and a card showing the target letters (please see preview).
The cards create a visual aid for the target letter combinations. The word is given to assist with sight learning and the target is drawn out to help students understand which letter combination is associated with that sound.
These can be used as prompts, in memory games, snap or in matching activities, e.g.:
*letter combination (e.g. 'ch') and image (e.g. 'cheese');
*letter combination (e.g. 'ch') and word (e.g. 'cheese');
*image and word;
*image to prompt word;
*image to prompt letter combination 'ch'.
These will teach the students to scan for these combinations, read the word by sight and associate the image with the sound (phonic association).
These are designed for young learners or ESL learners not accustomed to these letter combinations in English. The images chosen are cute, simple and generally recognisable (although note this uses 'gherkin' which is a type of pickle (; You may want to stick to 'ghost' if gherkin isn't common usage where you are).
Thanks for looking. Please look through my store for similar ESL/ early literacy flashcards such as prepositions of place and reflexive pronouns or flashcards to show how to tell time. Thanks!
