Part 1 Flashcards

Teaching flashcards: Part 1 teaching flashcards cover the 44 basic sounds. Each sound card has an associated picture and word to highlight the sound. Picture cards have attractive, colourful original illustrations.
These cards are used for the blending and segmenting of new and known sounds and encoding of words. They are also used for sounds review and in fun flashcard games requiring recall of letter sounds. They have an important place in each lesson plan and should be used prior to workbook activity.
The ‘younger learner’ set of flashcards is suitable for use with older learners. Some additional picture and word cards with a more mature focus have been added.

Note: Word cards are for recognition of key sound only in the early stages. Learners are not asked to decode words with unfamiliar sounds.

Assessment flashcards: The flashcards are used for oral assessment or ‘phonics check’ at the end of each set of five sounds. They contain letter sounds and words learned in the current and previous sets along with ‘special words’. They are used to test pronunciation, blending and segmenting skills. The assessments are straightforward to administer. The cards are to be used in conjunction with the written assessment and Assessment Guide which also contains copies of all cards.

Flashcard Display Board

The flashcard display board provides a quick and easy way to ‘play’ with sounds. In Part 1, the teacher shows the picture card to represents the key sound associated with the picture. This is followed by the grapheme (letter) card for the sound, then the word card to show the sound in context.

The picture and word cards are then taken down and the letter cards only are used for blending and segmenting of sounds, e.g., the long vowel /ee/ could be placed in the centre and consonant cards with familiar sounds used to build words like see meet and sheet.

This board can be used by learners as well as teachers and is also used for fun activities.

A free plan of the display board is included in the A5 flashcard sets. Boards can be custom made by arrangement.
