Read Write Inc. Home: Phonics Flashcards (Set 1) by Read Write Inc
These cards are the home version of the 'Speed Sounds Cards' used in many schools.
Before your child can start to read, he or she needs to learn how to say the sound that is represented by each letter or letter group (the 'Speed Sounds') and how to blend the sounds together in a word to read it , e.g. c-a-t = cat, sh-o-p = shop. This is called sound blending.
These Phonics Flashcards include:
- 31 Speed Sound cards with the letter or letters that represent a sound on one side and a simple picture prompt on the other side (the letter sounds a-z and the sounds sh, ch th, nk and ng - the sounds your child needs to learn to read Storybooks 1a to 3b).
- 17 picture cards with pictures of things that contain the same sound as the Speed Sound cards.
- 7 instruction cards with activities to help your child learn the Speed Sounds, the letters that represent them, and how to sound-blend them into words for reading.
