Why 3-Part Reading Cards Work
Once children begin to read, they have a voracious appetite for the written word but they may feel overwhelmed or
discouraged by traditional first reader books. These 3-part Reading Cards are the perfect next solution. Begin with the
Phonetic Reading Cards and then use these to follow the child's interest while encouraging them to read non-phonetic words.
Children read the words on the separate word cards and match them to the picture-only cards. Then, they use the control
cards (which include the words and pictures) to check their own work. We also offer many of our 3-part reading cards as
vocabulary and matching cards; these contain the same photos but in a slightly larger format and without the distraction of the
written word. It is great to have all three sets in one classroom so that the 3-year olds (using vocabulary cards), 4-year-olds
(using matching cards), and 5+ year-olds (using 3-part reading cards) can all be exploring the same topic--great for classroom
