This is a great resource for students to use to strengthen their decoding and blending skills, develop letter/sound correspondence knowledge, and learn new vocabulary. I have included a file with comic sans font and one file with Sassoon infant font, making this a very versatile resource!
Ways to use these cards:
*As an independent center activity for children to match the pictures to the words.
*As a cooperative learning activity: pair the children and give them a set of pictures and words- they must work together to match the pictures to the words.
*As a teacher activity when working on decoding and blending CVC words.
****Treasure Hunt: Put out as many picture cards as you want around the classroom floor or in the playground and give each child some word cards. The first child to find all of their pictures is the winner. Or give a word at a time to each child and every time they make a match they get another card. For every match, they can get a sticker or other reward/recognition.

If you are using Letters & Sounds to teach phonics, you can take out the cards which have qu, v, w, x, y, z, zz and j. You could then use those cards when you start Phase 3.
