I tutor students in the lower grades who are having difficulty with different subjects and others who have special needs. I did this teaching aid because I wanted a manipulative to use for a multi-sensory learning tool. While my main emphasis is lower elementary, these cards could be used in other grade levels. It is a large file because I wanted many words to use for a good length of time and many as it will be frequently used. Common Core standards are met with this product.
The set includes words from the various parts of speech. While some parts of speech are not taught extensively in the lower elementary, the words are necessary for sentence construction. In order to aid in understanding, the various parts of speech are color coded. A set of punctuation marks are included. Also included is a set of upper case alphabet letters for when a student puts a word at the beginning of a sentence that is not capitalized they can place the capital letter on top of the first letter in the word on the card.
I used the font OpenDyslexic to assist students with better comprehension of the words.
The file is located in a zip packet because of the size. There are a total of 160 pages with four 3”x 5” cards, with one word per card. There are 156 pages of words, one page of punctuation marks, 2 pages of the alphabet in upper case, and one page of four titles of respect. The file is saved in the pdf format.
A one page template is also in the packet in Word format to use if you wish to make other cards.
The words on the cards are:
92 Proper nouns in red
96 Common nouns in orange (Dolch nouns)
232 Verbs, different tenses, common, helping, and linking verbs in blue
56 Pronouns in bright green
88 Adjectives in purple
60 Articles, Conjunctions, & Prepositions in hot pink
1 page of punctuation marks . , , ? ! ‘ “ ” in gray on narrower cards
2 pages of the alphabet in capital letters in brown on narrower cards
4 Titles of respect Mr. Mrs. Miss Dr. in black
