Phonics, Vocabulary, Games and Activities with visual support
Posted by EALEE - 07 Mar. 2018 - Classroom Materials

Using this resource will help students with reading, spelling, pronunciation and possibly increase English vocabulary. Often resources for doing phonic work have words without pictures. This is not ideal for students who are learning English. All the words used in this resource have visual support, so that learning the sounds of a combination of two letters is incorporated with learning additional English vocabulary. As with most of my resources, reference pages are included so that students can successfully complete worksheets, play games and take part in activities. This enables students to work independently at times and builds confidence in using the four skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. When playing the dominoes game, naming the items and reading the words, as cards are placed on the table, helps with the retention of new vocabulary. This resource is printable. Laminating games is recommended.  The same vocabulary (listed below the contents) is used in the different tasks to reinforce the targeted vocabulary.
