Phonetic Reading/Writing Cards

Phonetic Reading/Writing Cards

These 64 reading cards show both short and long phonetic words. They are printed in red and blue on blue lines, like the primary writing paper. Sets of cards like these have been used in Montessori classrooms for many years. A favorite game is for two children to divide up the cards and take turns holding them up and having their friend read the card. To make, simply print, cut and laminate, if desired.

Plants - 3 Part Cards

Plants - 3 Part Cards

When I was planning how to make this work, I decided I wanted it to be a very basic introduction to plants. In this set, there is one example of each of the following plant groups: tree, bush/shrub, grass, vine, fern, moss, green algae and herb. To make, simply print out the cards and labels, cut apart and laminate, if so desired. I have also included a page that you can print, laminate, fold and affix to make a folder for the cards. Thanks so much for checking out my work! Mary
