I actually have picture flashcards for all of these phonemes, made the last time I taught Primary 3. But when I pulled them out at the beginning of the summer to see about using them again, I found I really didn't like them. So this project began.
When I started, I wasn't expecting to get anything out of it in terms of my teaching - I just expected to have more attractive resources that kids would find more appealing and that would be easier to read up on the wall (which is a good goal in and off itself, of course).
But as I've been making them, I've found myself thinking much more carefully about the types of words I'm including, ordering the words by difficulty, and adding in verb endings, compound words, etc, when that makes sense. And as I do that, I'm beginning to see more possibilities for expanding, altering, and differentiating the various tasks I typically set during our literacy/phonics time each week.
So while this process has been quite time-consuming, I think that doing all of the weeks at the same time has been a great way to 'see the whole picture', and think about ways to streamline and build better progression into my phonics teaching. Within the files, there are 'How I use these' pages - nothing major, but I've started breaking down the different types of words I've used in the flashcards. Hopefully that will allow you to structure the progression and differentiation in your own phonics teaching more easily as well. Here are the WH and PH flashcards/wall words. Happy Back to School planning!
