Phonics Phase 2,3,4,5 - Digital Flashcards - Phonics by Phase - Letters & Sounds - Picture Prompts

Tired of printing, laminating and cutting flashcards over and over, I decided to go digital! Covering the Letters and Sounds document from Phase 2-5, these flashcards can be used in a variety of ways! These flashcards are organized by Phase - 2, 3, 4 and 5 with a picture prompt on each card to support with decoding each sound! For flashcards that are broken down further into sets, check out my Phonics Phase 2,3,4,5 - Digital Flashcards - Phonics by Sets - Letters & Sounds. Assessments are quick and easy - no sorting out piles of cards, just navigate to the set you need on the easy to read menu! Displayed on an interactive whiteboard these flashcards make a great quick lesson starter or a revision tool for a five-minute filler. Each set is color coded, with a mini reference key on each slide showing which phase and set you're working on! At the end of each set, simply click the home icon to return to the main menu! To use on an iPad, simply upload the PDF into your chosen drive (I use Google Drive), open them up in iBooks and away you go! © Rebecca Perry
