Instructions to make flashcards: In order to make your “/ɔ:/ sound” words flashcards you will need cardstock (cereal box), printer, glue or double tape, scissors, laminating film (optional).

Cut the words individually and stick them on to the cardstock (optional: with the illustration on the back), laminate them if necessary.

Read the words with your child, ask what pattern can s/he see (excluding the common exception word) and ask how many syllables are in each of the words (you can use the clap method to count the syllables by saying the word and clap your hands together each time you hear a vowel sound).
