This Phonics and Shapes Flashcard duo pack will help support your child to become a confident learner in letter sounds and shapes. The cards will help to increase interaction with children, develop communication skills and encourage learning their times tables through play.
We believe that early experiences have long-lasting outcomes in terms of educational achievement and life chances.
We have created this Phonics and Times Table bundle to help your child learn through play with longevity in mind. You will receive two sets of cards, Phonics & Times Tables.
The Phonics pack consists of 37 double-sided cards with simplistic and engaging illustrations of animals doing sports and activities. Each animal has a name to help identify and make the phonic sound more relatable, you will meet Ollie the octopus, Lara the lion, Gary the goat amongst many other new friends. As well as your child learning letter sounds, they will be empowered with lots of new activities and sports that they can achieve. Teach them that the world is their oyster and anyone can do anything if they really put their mind to it.
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.
