These cards are for teacher use in phonemic awareness activities where you would need word lists quickly at hand. The file is a downloadable file with 592 words, organized by spelling pattern based on difficulty (VC, CVC, VCC, CVCC, CCVC, CCVCC) and also by the words using continuous sounds/stop sounds (coded on the cards as "CS" or "Stop sounds").
I use them by printing on to heavy card stock, then cutting and laminating them. I then have them organized on a ring that hangs from the chart near my morning literacy space. I use them to quickly come up with words during morning phonics routines including word stretching and shrinking activities, changing a sound, segmenting words, rhyming words, beginning and ending sounds, blending words, writing words on the board for blending routines, etc.
As the year progresses, the students often ask me to use my cards during choice time to read the words and pretend to be the teacher and lead a "class" in blending routines. The kids love to be able to read the words on the card that I use during general class routines.
This file also includes one page of blank squares in the same size if you want to include your own words for specific lessons you are leading.
