Here is a bundle of 2 of my favorite products!
PHONICS DRILL CARDS FOR SOUND DRILL:
First, my absolute favorite deck of phonics drill cards!!! The product contains 108 phonics drill cards, cut and laminated into an easy to use drill deck. These cards are the hard version of my digital product, "O-G Phonics Drill Cards (vertical) with teacher's code for accuracy", which includes cards for all sound-spelling options an Orton-Gillingham tutor will teach.
One side of the card has a letter or letters. The other side of the card lists the sound options and key words for the letter(s) on the front. The student will only see the letter side of the card. The backside of the card is for the teacher’s reference and her use only.
These cards are printed vertically rather than horizontally, so the card fits in the hand differently. Also, the font on the letter side provides an authentic visual for letter formation; the letters "a" and "g" look like a student would write an "a" and a "g".
SNAP CARDS FOR BLENDING/READING DRILL
The product contains SNAP cards, cut and laminated into an easy to use drill deck. These cards are the hard version of my digital product, "SNAP Cards for Blending and Reading: Orton-Gillingham Approach."
These SNAP cards are ready to use in the blending/reading drill of an Orton-Gillingham lesson. I have found that using a separate deck for blending, one that is different from my phonics/sound drill deck (used in Associations 1, 2, & 3 of O-G), provides much more practice in blending and reading CVC words. In a SNAP deck, the consonant sounds appear on 40 cards in the initial and final positions for blending practice, and there are 20 vowels for the medial sound in CVC words. When a tutor uses the SNAP deck, the student will read more than 200 real and nonsense CVC words.
To use the cards, organize them into three stacks as pictured:
1) beginning consonants;
2) medial vowels;
3) ending consonants.
Place the cards face-up for the student to see. The student reads the C-V-C word shown on the letter cards. As the student blends the sounds and reads a word, the tutor ”SNAPS,” or removes, one card from any stack, changing the word. The student repeats the blending/reading exercise as the tutor continues to SNAP one card at a time, from only one stack at a time, creating a new word each time a card changes. The purpose of the drill is to build rapid decoding skills and provide a solid foundation for teaching closed syllables.
Both sets of cards have been printed, cut, and laminated with 5ml laminating film. (Most school laminators use 1.5 ml.) The pouch lamination system creates a consistent and exact size for every single card. The cards are durable and easy to handle, about the size of a playing card. The cards have the flexibility of a credit card. In other words, they don't bend easily. The size of the card fits in my hand easily, and the deck can be shuffled like regular playing cards.
With the high-quality, heavy-weight lamination, both sets of cards are so durable and so easy to use that they allow me to move through the sound, blending, and reading drill portion of an Orton-Gillingham lesson at an accelerated pace. You will really like them!
These cards are an excellent resource for a beginning tutor or home-schooling parent who does not have training in early literacy. The key on the back of the card ensures purity and accuracy of the Orton-Gillingham approach.
