They’ve done movable alphabet work and they’ve tried to sound out some of the words they’ve written. The moment is ripe… you’re ready to introduce phonetic reading. But once they start the phonetic object box, they keep coming to you to check their work. UGH! We want them to be independent but the phonetic object box requires you to provide the control of error. Not anymore!
Our Phonetic Reading Cards have all the benefits of the phonetic object box with the added essential of a built-in control of error. Our 3-Part Card format allows children to check their own work. YES!!! Approximate card sizes are 3¾” x 4¼” (control cards), 3¾“ x 3” (photo cards), and 3¾” x 1¼” (word cards).
Note: Our laminated cards are ready to use. Unlaminated cards require lamination before use.
|1. Layout Photo Cards||2. Read & Match Word Labels||3. Check Work with Control Cards|
- Start with Level 1 for simplest phonetic words
- Move on to Level 2 to add in phonetic consonant blends
- Get your phonogram work going with Level 3: Phonograms
- Pull it all together in Level 4 with phonetic words that contain more than one phonogram
Our Levels are similar to that proposed by the pink, blue, green series as follows:
- Level 1 = pink series
- Level 2 = blue series
- Level 3 = green series

After the children have plenty of practice with phonetic words that follow the rules, they develop enough confidence to begin working on the non-phonetic half of our language (see our 3-Part Reading Cards and Puzzle Words).
