This product is a bundle of 2 of my favorite products: the phonics with teacher's code and the SANP cards for blending practice.
PHONICS CARDS FOR SOUND DRILL:
My absolute favorite is the 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 cards in this deck are printed vertically rather than horizontally, so the card fits in the hand very well. Also, the font on the letter side resembles a student's print manuscript for a handwritten letter; the letters "a" and "g" look like a student would write an "a" and a "g".
I have also included is an explanation of Associations 1, 2, & 3 and directions for using the cards in the Orton-Gillingham lesson.
READY TO USE SNAP CARDS FOR BLENDING DRILL:
I use my SNAP Cards 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 drill deck (used in Associations 1, 2, & 3 of O-G), provides much more practice in blending and reading CVC words.
What is the difference between a SNAP deck and a phonics DRILL deck? The DRILL deck has only one card for each letter(s)/sound-spelling option. Using the DRILL deck for blending is limiting since each consonant can only be used in either the first or final position, not both. 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. The purpose of the drill is to build rapid decoding skills and provide a solid foundation for teaching closed syllables.
