PHONICS MADE PLAIN by Michael S. Brunner

This set consists of flash-cards and a wall chart for classroom use. This packet gives you the necessary tools to teach your child phonics. It includes a set of flashcards and a corresponding wall chart. Each flashcard contains one phonogram. A phonogram is either one letter or a combination of letters that represents one sound in a word.

On the reverse side of each card is teaching information including: sample words for each sound of that letter or phonogram in order according to their frequency of use; references to the wall chart (included in this kit) and to the book, "ABC’s and All Their Tricks;" and exceptions to the rules. The wall chart lists the ten simplest phonics rules and gives examples.

The packet contains one teacher card and 78 phonogram cards as follows:
  • 5 vowel cards
  • 20 consonant cards
  • 5 vowel digraph cards
  • 11 consonant digraph cards
  • 5 mixed digraph cards
  • 5 r-controlled digraph cards
  • 14 paired vowels (diphthongs) and mixed digraph cards
  • 4 three-letter phonogram cards
  • 2 four-letter phonogram cards
  • 9 uncommon phonogram cards
(PLEASE NOTE: there is not a separate -ce phonogram card; it is covered on the -si = /sh/ card)

Additional examples and explanations can be found in the excellent reference work, The ABC's and All Their Tricks which are keyed to Phonics Made Plain.

Card Pack includes 78 phonogram cards, 1 instruction card, and 1 wall chart
