These are ready-to-cut-out flash cards with all of the pinyin initials and finals. They can be used in a number of ways to reinforce spelling. For example, students can explore which initials can and cannot be followed by the final "iao." Some examples of ways to use this product include:
* The teacher says pinyin syllables. Students work in groups to match up the correct initials and finals.
* Students work to create lists of all the finals that can go with each initial.
* Students create pinyin syllables and quiz each other on pronunciation. For each syllable they pronounce, they can write down the character(s) they know that are pronounced that way.
