These are just like our first quality cards except there is a slight production error that made us judge it as second quality. The error may be that the colors are slightly off, the images slightly askew, a spot or small hair in the laminate on one or more cards, and/or a slight curve to the laminate. Often the error is only on one card and customers can't find it (but we can)! Other than that, these are perfect and complete. Our production error means big savings for you!

Compound words are examples of language magic... when you put the word fly after the word fire, you get a whole new creature! Read these cards yourself to inspire your spoken language games. Then, once the children start reading, set them free to play compound word matching card games. Sit back and wait to see what they come up with. This is a wonderful, self-correcting work for one or more children to play. Extend the work by adding the red and black movable alphabets so children can test their own spelling and memory abilities...this is particularly fun for two children to do together (one plays scribe and the other gives dictation).
