This product is organized based on phonemes (sounds) and their corresponding graphemes (letter/letters combinations). Although this is an extensive list, it is not exhaustive and does not include every single grapheme for each phoneme. However, it does cover the most common letter/sound pairs and should give students an understanding of how to use these spelling/reading patterns.
This set is organized so that all of the graphemes that represent a particular phoneme are grouped together. For example, the /long a/ sound can be represented by the grapheme “ay” as in “day” or “ai” as in “rain.” You will see the same graphemes repeat, but with different phoneme representations. For example, “a” is listed as a grapheme more than once – “a” as in “apple” vs “a” as in “swan”. Each phoneme/grapheme pattern is reinforced with a visual “guide word” to help students remember the patterns.
These cards are designed to be cut apart into individual phoneme/grapheme cards. They work really well as a bulletin board or anchor chart. This whole-class presentation allows students to refer to these patterns as they read and write. Students can also add different words they’ve found the fit the same pattern in order to create a dynamic resource for students. The file can also be printed 2 to a page to make smaller cards.
This is only 1 set but there are 4 sets available in my store - 2 for consonants spelling patterns and 2 for vowel spelling patterns.
