Picture Cards for Instruction

This collection of printable picture cards represents a selection of words for use in phonological awareness instruction. By using pictures instead of letters to represent words, children are able to focus on hearing the sounds in oral language. Use these cards to introduce: 1) new phonological and phonemic skills with multisyllable words for building syllable awareness skills; 2) CVC words to help teach onset-rime and phonemic awareness skills; and, 3) words with blends and digraph blends for teaching students to segment, blend, and manipulate words with that level of complexity.
