These cards are perfect for use in displaying phonics patterns around your classroom! Each card features a phonics pattern, a picture of an item featuring the pattern, and the spelling of that item with the phonics pattern underlined, all in Zaner-Bloser font. These are great for use in introducing a new phonics pattern. They help students to connect patterns to known words/concepts in order for better understanding and retention. After using a card to introduce the pattern, leave it up all year for students' reference. Two patterns print on each 8 1/2 x 11" sheet. Cut down the line in the middle to separate into individual cards. Print on cardstock and laminate in order to use for years to come!
