Just Ask Judy


This is a free set of letter/ sound picture cards, perfect for introductory lessons in kindergarten or first grade. Each card has a consonant digraph (sh, ch, th, wh, and –ck) or a rime (-ang, -ing, -ong, -ung, -ank, -ink, -onk, and –unk) and a key picture representing the sound(s) the letters stand for. Although not considered a consonant digraph, I have included rimes with –nk in this resource. There are two key pictures on separate cards for th (voiced and unvoiced sounds). This resource includes two sets of cards, one with color pictures and one with black/ white. These cards were designed for use with multi-sensory introductions and for daily practice. They are sized for teaching small groups or individuals.

Key word pictures:

sh shark

ch chair

th mother (voiced)

th thumb (unvoiced)

wh whistle

-ck duck

-ang hang

-ing ring

-ong long

-ung lung

-ank bank

-ink sink
