Picture Card Page Exercise
Use the reading cards from our free printouts for the picture cards & labels- These cards will fit on a standard letter size-8 1/2 by 11 inches (you can use firmer paper, such as card stock or construction paper.)
Method for making the materials-
Cut out the pictures and labels.
Paste about 6 pictures on a standard size sheet of paper or poster board. Put the matching labels in an envelope or zip lock bag. Store the envelope of labels taped or Velcroed to the back of the matching picture card page.
Make as many picture card pages you need.
Mix up the pictures and words, they don't have to rhyme.
* Introduce easy first picture card sheets for early readers. Use three lettered phonetic words and matching pictures. Progress to more difficult words later.
Have the child take one of labels and read it.
Ask, "Can you put that word by the picture that matches it? "
Do the rest of the words.
Let your child do the exercise. Your child can pick out other picture card pages to do.
Disappear in the background while still keeping an eye on the process.
