Phonics is a way of teaching children to read and write by using the sounds (phonemes) that we put together to form words. Ideal for practising phonics with young children aged 3+, these laminated cards introduce 44 basic phonemes along with carefully selected examples. Each card has a phoneme on one side and a simple word and picture on the other side. Fun and easy to use with individuals or a class group, these attractive cards make an excellent tool to support the development of this important skill.
