Lesson 1 Rhyming Cards
Words with the same ending sounds are words that rhyme.
This set of 24 colorful 5.5” x 5.5” laminated cards is a fun and effective way of teaching words that rhyme. Use these cards for all types of games!
Lesson 2 - Syllabication
Syllables are units of pronunciation in a word. With our set of 24 brightly hand drawn 7.5 x 5.5” laminated cards you can teach all units from 1 to 5 syllables!
Lesson 3 - Segmenting and Blending
Breaking up a word into its component vowel and consonant sounds is segmenting. Putting the sounds together to hear a word is blending. We make it easy to teach this component of reading with 8 illustrated 5.5” x 5.5” laminated cards.
Lesson 4 - The Alphabet
Each word is composed of letters. Each letter has its own distinct sound. An image of an object which begins with that letter and resembling the shape of the letter is included in this 54 card set of the alphabet. Each 5.5” x 5.5” picture was carefully chosen and matched to the letter it represents. This promotes letter-sound association. Introduce no more than two letters at a time. Avoid teaching any two of these letters (b, d, p, q) together to prevent confusion with left, right or top and bottom orientations of the letters. We suggest teaching these image and letter cards along with the textured cards described below.
Lesson 4b - Sandpaper Letters
Our set of 27 7.5” x 5.5” textured letter cards invites the learner to trace the shape of the letter in the same manner that one writes the letter on paper. Each of the letters on these cards is coated with a sandpaper varnish for a tactile experience the child will not forget. This set teaches how one writes with ones fingers without the added difficulty of holding a pencil.
