Get two of my best teaching phonics resources. Phonics Helpers and Short Vowel Race to the Top Games. These make a great learning center and individual tutoring resource. You get 2 desk tents, 28 interactive key ring cards, 32 sound clue cards, 8 different games for reinforcement, short vowel sorting activities, short vowel word cards and letter cards. These resources combined provide hours of instructional activities. They come with ready to print activities and instructions.

Phonics Helpers are just what you need to help beginning and struggling readers learn to unlock reading. Students may hear the sounds but are not sure of what letters to use, or they see a letter but forget what sound to use. Phonics Helpers provide colorful, engaging graphics to give students a fast way to access their sound letter combination knowledge when reading, writing, and spelling. This set includes 2 double sided desk tents, 28 interactive key ring cards, and 32 sound clue cards for each letter of the alphabet and diagraphs. They are designed to be used after phonics concepts are taught to provide visual and tactile clues for decoding. The desk tents and key rings are great for individual use or as part of a reading center.

This set was designed to be used with the Wilson Reading Program, Recipe for Reading, and other Orton-Gillingham based reading programs, as well as in general classrooms. It helps support tutoring and individual instruction and works great in homeschool programs.

Visual clues are provided for: The sounds for each letter of the alphabet, including short and long vowel sounds, consonant diagraphs, closed Syllable exceptions, welded Sounds, b/d reversals, vowel pairs, bossy R, magic E, silent letters and syllable division. Desk tents can sit on the student’s desk or be placed in the reading center for quick reference when a student needs a clue to a sound or phonics rule. Interactive cards are provided for students to write on, tap out sounds, practice letters, and search for words in books. Place the cards on a ring for a handy set of phonic practice cards for the reading center or individual student use. These make great resources for aides, volunteers, or tutors working with individual students.
