Letter and Phonogram Flashcards
These alphabet and phonogram flashcards can be used for daily review. There are also cards to review the sound pictures from the sound story. I have the students say the sound or sounds for each letter or pattern, sometimes as a whole group, or sometimes in a small group. Other times, we say the sounds from the wall charts instead.
I print these flashcards on lightweight cardstock and cut the pages into fourths, using a heavy duty, large capacity paper cutter. If you have a lot of cutting to do, local print shops will cut thick stack of paper or cardstock for a reasonable price. Some of the files below will make a single set of flashcards. Some of the files will make four identical sets, to share with other teachers, teaching assistants, or parents.
The second set is in Century Schoolbook print. The letters look like the ones printed in typical children's books (abcdefg). These letters have small "serifs" that project from the basic outline of the letter. The letters a and g look different from the way they are written by hand. Students should work with both sets of cards, so they will recognize the letters either way.
There are two different sets of alphabet cards. The first set, for students just learning the alphabet, is in LD Traditional Print. This is a "san serif" font. The letters look the same as the ones that children write (abcdefg).

There are also two sets of b and d flashcards for students who need to practice discriminating between the two. The file has cards printed in LD Traditional Print and also in Century Schoolbook. Some of the d's are marked with a red "dot", and some of the b's are marked with a red "bow." These can be used first with students who can't tell the letters apart. Then the unmarked letters can be practiced. Print multiple copies of b and d in the style you want to use. Mix the b and d cards, then go through the stack with a small group and have individual students give you the correct sound for each letter. After finishing the stack, immediately go through the cards again, this time answering in unison.
