Who It’s For: Teachers & Independent Learners of Basic Phonics Through “Rhyming Word Families”
Why You Need It: It’s a natural fit: developing phonemic awareness by matching rimes—the sounds of the vowel + final consonant(s)—in a syllable. And what more appealing way to do so than with Picture & Word Cards of one-syllable items that rhyme? This Activity & Idea Book tells not only why to use classic-design 52-card decks to meet educational aims, but also what to do and how to do it.
What You’ll Do:
 Get reasons for using card decks containing 13 matching sets of four one-syllable items in the CVC (Consonant-Vowel-Consonant) Pattern in Phonics & Spelling Instruction at Basic & Beginning Levels.
 Check the Table of Contents for pedagogical info, lesson instructions, game rules, and ideas for “beyond the book” activities relevant to your purposes or situations. See what might work for you.
 Use the contents of all 52 Rhyming-Word Reference Lists (of 6 to 26 items each) whenever it helps in preparation, teaching/learning, learner-centered cooperative or competitive activity, follow-up, and so on.
