  • Pop each page into an A4 display book for whole class reference as you cover each sound. I have reduced the printing size to fit 2 to a page and popped them into a display book for reference with my boys' homework or when they ask how to spell a word! - We clap out the syllables - listen for the sounds within each syllable - write the grapheme for each sound using the display book as reference if needed.

    • For example, this morning my 8 year old wanted to confirm how to spell the word 'high' - ok - 'high' is 1 syllable 2 sounds - /h/ sound is easy - the /ie/ sound has many options - we quickly looked at the /ie/ chart and decided that 'igh' was the best.. this all happens quite quickly after the children practise the flow of this process regularly...)

  • Print them off and place on coloured backing card and laminate - keep as A4 size, enlarge to A5, or reduce size as small as like and make a booklet (ideal for take home reference)

  • These are terrific for use during writing editing and for spelling/word study reference. Ideal for display and reference during writing sessions, word study, spelling, shared reading, syllable/sound mapping and general word play and literacy activities.

  • Go on a 'word hunt' to find words around the room in readers, in library books, in newspapers, magazines, with certain phonic groups and sounds.

  • Use the matching phonics words, classroom theme cards, dolch nouns, and dolch sight words to group according to the phonics blends contained in the words.

  • Rhyming words in rhymes, poems, and songs are ideal to use with these cards.

This is a fantastic resource! It is more comprehensive than the Thrass charts, and has a lovely, clear layout. Thank you :)

Hi, I love these new posters and have them up on my wall. The children are always referring to them :-) Would it be possible to have x and y on separate charts please - to maintain the consistency of one chart for one sound. Regards

Hi Nicky
Thanks for your comments.
It is always tricky to know how far to go as the english language has so many exceptions etc. We have tried to just put up the most used ones so as not to have too many which can confuse the kiddies
Many teachers make up another ''extras'' chart to add other sounds to as they need.
The ks one - I find is really a plural of ''ck'' - and I tell the kiddies that socks is s o ck s - to me anyway - you can hear the 2 sounds as ck and s . Just my view though - I find sometimes we can get too caught up on the different sounds that we forget some of the rules such as add an s to make it plural, soft c / g before a vowel and doubling a consonant before adding ing etc etc (we will do these rules up soon)
I hope that makes sense Nicky - and we appreciate your input.
Please comment if you feel this is incorrect.....
Cheers Nicki

I love your 24 Consonant Sounds (Phonemes) and Related Graphemes cards. I have them all beautifully set up in my classroom to help my Year 2 students learn some tricky spelling patterns. I was wondering though, should you add some other common spelling patterns to the /h/ /x/ /y/ card such as /ks/ as in socks and /wh/ as in who? I find these are words that get used in my classroom a bit and my students cannot find the proper spelling patterns.

Otherwise, keep up the great work. I love the convenience of your website!!! :)

  • I extend the YES/ NO game by printing the DOLCH words (small print) ,cutting up the lists and laminating them & including them in the YES /NO packet. Use a blank card to put ?'s about these words e.g. how many times can you find these words in Chapter 2? Chn. list the results on a whiteboard.

  • The Sea words are great to add to the Lighthouse series books when you are doing these books with the children. you could extend the theme to the sea and then to pirates and far away lands and maybe even first contact explorers of Australia.
