The new Word Builder’s Kit was created by a classroom teacher who used it successfully with her students. It contains:
- 2 decks of phonics playing cards. The red deck has 37 beginning sounds such as b, bl, br, c, ch, cl, cr, d, dr, ... t, th, tr, w plus 2 wild cards. The yellow deck has 56 ending sounds such as ab, ack, ad, ag, ail, ain, ake, ... ue, ug, um, ump, un, unk, ush, y plus 2 wild cards. The cards can be used as flash cards in the specially designed flash card box holder.
- Instructions for 12 different card games. The Word Builder™ cards can also be used to play 12 different card games so readers can practice reading skills in a social environment. There is a large variety of games and you can also use the cards to invent your own games. Some games are easy, some challenging and some are in-between. Some games are for just one person and some can be played by 2, 3, or 4 players. Some games are cooperative and some are competitive.
- A Word Checking Chart shows all 1,015 possible words that can be built. It also lists the frequency of each beginning and ending sound so players can easily see which ones are used more often. When students use the Word Checking Chart, they practice dictionary skills.
- Phonics in a Nutshell is a unique feature of the Wordbuilders Kit. It is designed for teachers and parents and is a detailed chart of the 44 phonemes (sounds) in the English language, alternative spellings of those sounds, comments about the phonemes, some words in which the phonemes are silent, and some comments about phonics.
The Word Builders Kit is only $12.95. It’s such a versatile tool, you’ll wonder how you got along without it.
