Phonics skills are the building blocks to reading. Teaching these skills in a systematic and hands-on
way is proven to be a successful instructional strategy to reach ALL learning. However, sometimes instructing with all of the different modalities in mind can be difficult! These resource can help support visual, auditory and tactile
approaches to teaching, and learning phonics skills for K-2nd+ graders.
→What is included in this resource?
#1 - The Phoneme and Grapheme flashcards
closely follow the Recipe for Reading sequence. The cards feature graphemes for consonants, short vowels, digraphs, consonant blends, long vowel teams, r-controlled vowels, diphthongs, and other word endings. There are three versions of these flashcards so you can pick the print option best suited for you. Click HERE
to read more specifically about the phoneme/grapheme flashcards.
#2 - The same phoneme/graphemes from the flashcards have been made into sound posters.
Currently, each poster features the grapheme and a key word to help trigger the sound. However, these posters are currently "under construction" and will be updated periodically. They will soon also feature a picture to help students produce the correct sound. Click HERE

→ How can this resource support your students?
#1 - The flashcards will help you to systematically and consistently
introduce and spiral review phonics skills with your whole class, and small groups. Additionally if you choose to create a binder (as seen in the pictures), these cards can help take your students from skills in isolation, to blending words/syllables. I highly recommend printing off multiple sets to easily differentiate your instruction to each group of students.
#2 - As students get older, they struggle more with long vowels, digraphs and diphthongs than they do initial sounds. Rather than having an alphabetical word wall, this word wall would allow students to reference the sounds they are in need of. When teaching, or reviewing these sounds, students can assist you with adding words to your wall. This teaching tool can help your student learn to listen and identify more complex sounds by encouraging the appropriate use of these phonemes.
