Phonics Flash Cards

Use our phonics flash cards to supplement your current literacy program. Flash cards offer quick, easy practice even when you have just a few spare minutes. Kids can quiz each other, and parents can quiz their children.

These free cards are great to use both in the classroom and at home. See our ideas on using the flash cards below the images.

Ideas for Using These Phonics Flash Cards

  • Show one card at a time to your entire class. Say the name of the picture with the students. Emphasize the sound of the beginning letter.
  • Ask students to name more words that begin with the same letter.Be ready to add several familiar words of your own.
  • Print one set of cards per student. Ask students to cut apart their own set of cards and place them in resealable bags. Tell the students to take their cards home and read the pictures and letters with family members.
  • Print an extra set of cards. Remove the letters by cutting away that part of each card. Ask students to name the first letter for each picture.
  • Ask small groups of students to make their own similar sets of flash cards to share in your center.
