Students will select a card and by looking at the picture determine the beginning, middle, and end sounds of the word to promote spelling, phonics, reading, and writing. The students will then be able to write the word on the line provided to further the study of the word. There are 20 long a word/picture cards provided. All that is needed is a printer. I would suggest laminating them and placing them in a work station or a center. By writing the word correctly on the back the students will be provided with a self-check system also.
