Who It’s For: Teachers & Independent Learners Wanting to Apply Phonics Principles to “Advanced” Spellings in Multi-Syllable Words
Why You Need It: Have students learned regular and alternative phonics patterns with Rhyming-Words Card Decks E-H? Then they’re ready to apply sound rhyming principles to items of more than one syllable: words with added suffixes, compounds, and short phrases.
What You’ll Do:
 Review the advantages of teaching/learning phonetic rhyming, especially with Word & Picture Cards that display one item each and that have three matches. Revisit the pedagogy of syllables and vowel + consonant spellings.
 Skim the reference manual for familiar sections that still seem useful as well as new information to add to lessons. Take a fresh look at principles, linguistic info, lesson steps, game rules, and ideas for “beyond the book” activities relevant to your purposes or situations. Add your own ideas.
 Use the contents of all 52 Rhyming-Word Reference Lists (containing 7 to 64 items each) whenever it helps in preparation, teaching/learning, learner-centered cooperative or competitive activity, follow-up, and so on.
 Now that you’ve mastered the important principles of teaching/learning rhyming words and phrases of various kinds, go beyond the materials. Create vocabulary lists, materials, and activities of your own.
