Parent Pack

Learning Matters


A5 Sound Pack **

A ring bound A5 pack. Contains vowels, consonants, digraph sounds, and longer spelling. Contains 35 cards. This sound pack is suitable for small groups and is designed for parents/classroom teachers to use when teaching the decoding (reading), and encoding (spelling), of sounds in isolation. 

Short-vowel Bingo **

The ability to identify short vowel sounds is one of the beginning skills in literacy to help build the foundation.

To play ‘Short-vowel Bingo’ children hear a word and match it to a picture that has the same short-vowel sound.

The game comes with six bingo boards (each board contains eight vowel sounds), and 56 cards to match. For ease of remembering what the image is, it is written in very small font in the top left-hand corner of each card.

This resource has two other activity options (1) sorting rhymes and (2) sorting sounds. 

Syllable Split **

Phonological Awareness requires a child to hear and manipulate spoken parts of words (syllables).

Blending syllables helps with decoding (reading). Generating syllables then breaking those syllables into sounds is a strategy used when spelling.

Syllable split comes with 20 Kiwiana style images that are already split into how many syllables they contain to explicitly teach that syllables are parts of words.  

This fun hands-on resource comes with 10 scripted lesson plans suitable for one-one, small groups, or a whole class. This resource is a great segway to the explicit teaching of open and closed syllables.
