Inviting letter and picture cards are used to promote letter identification and phonemic awareness. The use of realistic images, and simple words with short vowels is maximized.
Task cards, ideas for literacy center games, and suggestions for a scaffolded progression are included. Clipping the card strips gives children a multi-sensory task which builds essential fine motor skills. The Initial Sound Cards come in both 3”x5” and 5”x8” sizes. Small cards can be printed in black and white, put in individual children’s book box to be easily sorted out when mastered, or sent home for practice with parents. Large cards are suitable for group instruction.
Print Path letter font is a single stroke vertical manuscript that is compatible with either Zaner-Bloser© or Handwriting Without Tears© (HWT) style font. Print Path is compatible with HWT materials but allows your children to learn and practice formations on the three-lined paper they are most likely to encounter. Go-dots and arrows are research-based best practices to help your learners use correct letter formations toward the goal of forming life-long automatic and legible handwriting.
