28 page PDF file containing 43 beginning sounds/blends and 57 ending "chunks" in a home-made version of the orthography of the Reading Mastery Program.
I developed these cards to supplement teaching Reading Mastery in my classroom. Some ideas for use:
Make enough sets for your students; send them home for extra practice.
Make multiple copies and have your students practice making words at learning centers.
I think it's a fairly common thing for teachers observe the needs of their students and develop a variety of materials to meet those needs. This was my purpose when I developed these cards. Because of the special orthography used in Reading Mastery, making supplemental materials was not an easy task. I chose a font that was somewhat similar, did a little magic in a graphics program, and this was the end result.
About the program:
Reading Mastery is developed by McGraw-Hill and part of the SRA program. I have been teaching for 28 years now, and I can honestly say I have never had a program work as well as this one. I have used this program in my special education class for 10 years now. You don't know me =), but I can't sing the praises of this program highly enough. I have seen it work wonders with my kids, and would strongly recommend it to anyone, teachers and parents alike. It was NOT developed specifically for special education students, but works equally well for any child/adult of any ability.
