Suggestions for Use
Also available.... The Phonics Charts Full Monty.....
- Pop each page into an A4 display book for whole class reference as you cover each sound. I have reduced the printing size to fit 2 to a page and popped them into a display book for reference with my boys' homework or when they ask how to spell a word! - We clap out the syllables - listen for the sounds within each syllable - write the grapheme for each sound using the display book as reference if needed.
- For example, this morning my 8 year old wanted to confirm how to spell the word 'high' - ok - 'high' is 1 syllable 2 sounds - /h/ sound is easy - the /ie/ sound has many options - we quickly looked at the /ie/ chart and decided that 'igh' was the best.. this all happens quite quickly after the children practise the flow of this process regularly...)
- Print them off and place on coloured backing card and laminate - keep as A4 size, enlarge to A5, or reduce size as small as like and make a booklet (ideal for take home reference)
- These are terrific for use during writing editing and for spelling/word study reference. Ideal for display and reference during writing sessions, word study, spelling, shared reading, syllable/sound mapping and general word play and literacy activities.
- Go on a 'word hunt' to find words around the room in readers, in library books, in newspapers, magazines, with certain phonic groups and sounds.
- Use the matching phonics words, classroom theme cards, dolch nouns, and dolch sight words to group according to the phonics blends contained in the words.
- Rhyming words in rhymes, poems, and songs are ideal to use with these cards.
