This is absolutely my favorite deck of phonics drill cards!!!
The set contains 108 phonogram cards that hold the key to literacy for the dyslexic student. The teacher’s drill cards are an essential component of a reading lesson based on the Orton-Gillingham approach. I use these cards as a tutor with children who struggle to learn to read and write.
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.
The primary difference between this set and my other product listing for phonics drill cards: the cards in this deck are printed vertically rather than horizontally, so the card fits in the hand differently. It is a matter of preference for the tutor as to which one she prefers. Secondly, the font on the letter side provides an authentic visual for letter formation. Each letter resembles a student's print manuscript for a handwritten letter. In other words, the letters "a" and "g" look like a student would write an "a" and a "g". I have not found a published set of of phonics cards anywhere that have an authentic visual like the ones I have made in this set.
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.
I have also included is an explanation of Associations 1, 2, & 3 and directions for using the cards in the Orton-Gillingham lesson.
