Phonetic Reading Program
Why Phonetic Reading Cards Work
Before children read books, they read words! The four levels in this system create a truly phonetic, progressively structured
reading program filled with photos of objects the child will know. These cards work just like the phonetic object box but with
the added benefit of a control of error. Beginning with Level 1 Packet A, 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. Each level is divided into packets to make it easy to rotate work and maintain interest.  As they complete each
packet, their confidence and ability grows.

What's Included
Each reclosable packet includes photos of six different phonetic nouns, word labels for each noun, and a control card that
includes the photo and the word on one card. That's 6 control cards (3¾” x 4¼”), 6 picture-only cards (3¾“ x 3”), and 6 word
cards (3¾” x 1¼”); 18 cards/packet. Laminated cards are ready for use. See
laminating recommendations if purchasing
unlaminated cards. Eco-printed in the USA. When presenting our cards to the children, we recommend displaying them in a
decorative box, basket, or pouch like those pictured (sold elsewhere). You can purchase lovely fabric pouches directly from
Montessori Materials by Request or Handmade Montessori. Tell them Maitri sent you!
