After a child knows their sounds, including the phonograms – you introduce little booklets. Instead of using booklets, my good friend at Montessori Tidbits, Leann, mentioned this site to me … http://soundcityreading.com/. It’s a bit of a plethora to navigate to get what you want, but the secret to phonograms is found here – under Phonogram booklets
These are just wonderful, pictures with little stories for each one. But, some of the sentences were just not right for us …so I made my own.
In Word, I went and cut and pasted the pictures I wanted and added text appropriate for the phonograms associated.
Some of the pictures I just used the text the author had, but wanted it in Word to be a consistent font throughout.
I then made them into matching cards, sentence on one card, picture on the other. Of course, coloured-in each picture. 🙂
On the back of each card, is a matching colour cut-out. I just used coloured paper and my punches, modge-podge over.
And then, put each phonogram into an envelope with it’s label on the outside.
I’m so sorry that I can’t give you my files complete – I printed out all the files and then created sentences in Word, which I then matched. So if you want my sentences, here they are in Word …
Then you need to download and print – or cut and paste into my Word document the matching picture. Because this comes from a site, I cannot give this out due to copywrite.
As mentioned, phonogram booklets here –
Now a hint about downloading loads of pdf’s or other documents – in Firefox, I use an extension called ‘DownThemAll’. It adds a tool to your right-mouse click in Firefox, which will download in one step all the files on the page for you. No downloading each file at a time!
