Little Readers

Today, I will elaborate on the concept of teaching English language through phonics. You can teach your kid using “Flash Cards” or by simple “Write and Tell” method. Here I will demonstrate how to make and use flash cards for teaching English to a kid of 4 to 5 years of age. You can make flash cards using your old set of playing cards. Try using different color papers for different sets. Following are the 4 sets:

25 Flash Cards: Alphabets (one on each) including the sound written in Hindi

Approx. 25 Flash Cards: Vowels combination
i. A - ab, ad, ag, am, an, at
ii. E – ed, eg, en, et
iii. I – ib, id, ig, in, ip, it
iv. O – ob, od, og, op, ot
v. U – ub, ug, un, ut
vi. Long E – ee (tree, peel, bee, etc)
vii. Long O – oo (book, took, cook, etc)

Approx. 15 Flash Cards: Prefix and Suffix
i. Br, dr, fr, gr, tr, pr
ii. Sh, sl, sm, st
iii. Ch, Th,
iv. Bl, fl
v. Ing

Approx. 20 Flash Cards: Sight Words
i. As, he, my, by, is, to, on, in
ii. She, has, and, the, you, her, his, why, how
iii. There, this, what

Your pack of 85 phonic flash cards is now ready. You can play ‘mini scrabble’ with her anywhere and anytime. This way you kid will learn to read quickly and easily and that too without any stress.
