Phonics Pocket Flash Cards
What is Phonics?
Start playing with the short vowel cards, progressing into long vowels. When the vowel sounds are mastered, begin playing with the consonant cards, moving into blends, and the diagraphs.
Used some of the activities and games suggested here or make up your own. Before long, your child will be an expert reader!
Fun with Partners!
Say a Match. Show a card front to your partner. Ask your partner to say the word on the card. Then, listen as your partner says a word with the same sound. Let your partner know if he or she is right. Remember to share help when it's needed. Switch roles after five turns.
Hear and Write. Choose ten cards. One partner is a reader; the other is a listener. The reader draws a card and says a word from the list on the back. The listener says or writes another word with the same sound as the reader asked for. When the reader and listener both agree it's correct, draw another card and play a new round. Switch roles after five cards. Choose new cards and start again.
Racetrack. Choose someone to be the leader. Choose a group of cards and lay them on the floor to make a racetrack. Leave a space between each card so there is room for a player to stand by it. Line up at the start of the racetrack with two or three other players. Listen as the leader says a sound: "th as in feather," for example. The first person in line tells a word that has the same sound as the leader said. If the word is correct, that player stands by the card that shows that sound. Keep taking turns until someone reaches the end of the racetrack. Play again with a different leader and group of cards.
Fun for One!
Choose a flash card and circle that vowel, consonant, consonant blend, or digraph in words you see on newspaper or magazine pages. Choose different cards each time you play.
