Do your students love to collect any and every type of "card"? Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, you name it, our students love it. This resource is like Pokemon, but for vocabulary development!
Whether your student needs to catch up, keep up, or get ahead, this resource will be a useful vocabulary development tool.
In this resource you will find Phono-Pets cards. Each card has a creature, and each creature has vocabulary embedded in its "Special Skills" and "Weaknesses". The vocabulary words are in bold and they are made up of words that commonly appear in second and third grade basal readers that require direct, explicit instruction.
Phono-Pets Creature Cards format allows students to engage with new words in a non-threatening way. Research has shown that students need multiple memorable and authentic interactions with a word to make the definition "stick". Phono-Pets Creature Cards are adorable, trade-able, and functional for this purpose!
In addition to 12 Phono-Pets Creature Cards, this resource also features several templates for boosting vocabulary development.
