Phonetic Activity Cards

$13.95 USD

Remember playing charades? Well now your youngest readers can engage in that classic game while flexing their reading skills. Phonetic Activity Cards are just what they sound like: cards that each contain one action verb whose spelling follows predictable phonetic rules. These are a perfect next step to introduce after children have experience with our Phonetic 3-Part Cards and Phonetic Word Cards. 

Have fun modeling how to read a card, act it out, and guess which action you are doing. This is a fantastic way to get your social butterflies purposefully engaged in meaningful work.

Our set contains 40 cards, each with one phonetically-spelled action word written in red (the same color-coding used in the grammar materials for verbs). But don't put out all 40 cards at once. Instead, just put out 8 to 10 this week and then swap them out for 8 to 10 others in a week or two. This will keep your classroom full of magic and exciting new possibilities all while continuing to draw interest to reading.

Cards are approx. 2 3/4" x 1 3/4".

  • 40 action words that follow phonetic rules
  • Fully laminated with rounded corners
  • Lesson plan included
  • Comes in a sturdy, clear reclosable bag for storage
  • Created by a Montessori teacher
  • Eco-printed in our rural New England office

When presenting our cards to the children, we recommend displaying them in a decorative box, basket, or pouch like those pictured (sold separately).

Prefer to craft these cards yourself? These are also available as a PDF for download so you can make these yourself.

Made in the USA.
