How do you use Phonics Flashcards?

We know Phonics can seem daunting but we’ve done all the hard work for you. With our simple to follow instruction cards, you will find everything you need to follow your exciting phonics journey.  We will teach you how to use our cards, sound blending, pronunciation, phonics terminology and even phonic games – we’ve got you covered.  Each learning group has been cleverly segmented into their own letter groups by colour, so you can concentrate on one group at a time.  From there you can start to introduce sound blending where we will start you off by giving you examples of simple words.

    I went over the digraph cards and I’m not even joking… my son can now do the “th” sound! He has ALWAYS said “fff” instead of “th” no matter how much I tried to encourage it! He has an uncle called Theo so now he says it properly, instead of “fff-eo” and keeps repeating the sentence on the back of the card! Your cards are literally magic, I’m always amazed with each pack!

    Fab service. Super speedy and such amazing products. This is my 3rd order and I’m sure I will be back for more xx

    I ordered the phonics flashcards with the large flashcard holder. Whereas the flashcards were as expected, the large flashcard holders no longer have the branding. It is a shame, but it still does its intended job. I had a quick chat with Ollie, who explained the reasons … I have quite the collection of Happy Little Doers flashcards and games for my children, and highly recommend them. They are a great learning aid that can be integrated into play in so many ways to really make learning fun. The times table cards and poster are a personal favourite for helping my YR3 son master his 2-12 times tables.

    We have the Phonics, Writing, Numbers and Shapes flashcards – my 3.5yr old son just loves them and it has really helped follow up on what he is learning at nursery. He even hosted his own show n tell with them for his classmates one day.

    Absolutely love these activity cards.

    We take them everywhere we go and they’re perfect for a rainy day indoors. This is great prep for the year before school!

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, absolutely! All of our products are UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) tested. This is a legal requirement for all toys and goods that are used by children to verify toy safety. All paper stock is sustainably sourced and, where possible we use vegetable-based inks and natural materials.

When teaching with phonics flashcards, it is incredibly important for parents to follow the guidance given by the individual product that is being used; Happy Little Doers or otherwise. In the same regard as learning in other subjects, learning each stage in order will make it easier to teach and learn subsequent stages (much like learning numbers – children should master 1 to 19 to build the confidence of learning 20 and upwards!). However… within each stage supplied with the Happy Little Doers Phonics Flashcards for kids, there are a number of fun ways that the cards can be used for learning.

Why not check out our blog on ‘How to use Phonics Flashcards‘?

At Happy Little Doers, we’ve spent a great deal of time researching different ways of learning phonics in resources already on the market and in early years settings. As a result, we have created a product that has been highly praised and approved by both parents as well as early years teaching professionals and speech and language therapists.

The answer to this is yes, however… remember that every child, or grown-up for that matter, learns in their own individual way and at their own pace. There are some great resources out there that are effective in learning language and phonics – from books to television programmes. Most parents with young children over the last 15 years or so may be familiar with books written by Julia Donaldson, best known for writing The Gruffalo and Zog. Those that prefer to learn the language through books, and more specifically phonics, are in luck as a selection of 36 short stories are included with her Songbird Phonics Collection.
