Phonics Cards

These phonics cards were designed to be used for teaching and drill
purposes to support an existing phonics program with an established
scope and sequence. For example, you can use the cards in
conjunction with your schools reading series. The cards can be
utilized during both whole and small group instruction to support the
teaching of new phonics skills as well as review of previously taught
skills.
These cards were specifically aligned with the assessment and scope
and sequence found in the book School Success for Kids with
Dyslexia and Other Reading Difficulties (Walter E. Dunson).
To assemble your cards, simply print the pages single-sided to doublesided on cardstock. It is recommended that you laminate the cards so
that they are durable. Key words for the correct pronunciation of the
phonics skill is provided for you on the back of each card.
