Phonics Games for Short Vowels improve your child's reading skills.
Kids learn to read while they have fun playing familiar games they already know and love. Games include Memory, Go Fish, Old Maid, and War. While playing any of these games using this special deck of cards, children learn how to read words containing short vowels -- A, E, I, O, U.
Now your kids are reading and playing at the same time. And they love to make their own cards by separating the sheets along the perforations and then coloring the cards.
Teachers, parents, and tutors use this Short Vowels Phonics Game, designed by Linda Silbert, PhD and Al Silbert, EdD, to help kids develop reading and writing skills. And to improve focus and self-esteem. This Phonics Card Game integrates with the Orton-Gillingham method and with the Wilson and other phonics programs used in many school districts to teach reading.
Special Ed teachers use this fun Phonics Card Game to help teach reading to children with learning disabilities. Kids with ADHD, Autism, sensory processing disorder, language processing disorders, dysgraphia, and dyslexia can all have a great time playing the game while they get better at reading.
