This is a phonics set of 5 printable booklets in teaching your children to read English including flashcards. Phonics: Teach to Read features:
1. Beginning Phonograms and Word Flashcards
What is a Phonogram?
Phonograms are alphabetical characters, or symbols, that represent the sounds of speech. The first phonograms to be learned are the letters of the alphabet. Here we are not talking about the names of the letters. Alphabet Phonograms go from A to Z but represent the sounds the letters make, which sounds are called phonemes. (Intermediate phonograms in this program consist of phonograms composed of more than one letter. Advanced phonograms have more than one letter and more than one sound.)
It is recommended that Alphabet Flashcards (which teach letter recognition by name) be presented before presenting Alphabet Phonograms and that the Alphabet Song be sung often to the child as well as recitation of the alphabet. Besides the child learning letter recognition and alphabetical order, the child will begin to gain phonemic awareness, as the names of the letters contain the most common phoneme with few exceptions.

Description: Trees are the tallest living plants. Redwood trees can grow as tall as a
30-story building. Giant sequoias can weigh as much as 3,000 large pickup trucks, making them one of the heaviest living things. Trees also live a long time. Many trees alive today were full grown long before the United States became a country. But these massive trees share something with all plants—they make their own food.
