Early Childhood Phonogram Series


A durable, complete phonogram set; includes 3-part cards, realistic and beautiful objects, booklets, word lists and phonogram stories.  Included are optional container and cabinets to equip your phonogram area.

The Early Childhood Phonograms may be introduced using sandpaper phonograms and three part cards. Following are sequential activities which isolate specific phonograms used for writing & reading.  ES&I's realistic and durable 165 objects are used for encoding with the advanced moveable alphabet. Then the 30 phonogram booklets (see item #3 below for entire listing) may be decoded with variations and extensions added according to the child's interest. Matching word lists and phonogram short stories provide additional study of each phonogram. The phonogram short stories are a concrete example of creative writing and provide a model as the children illustrate the stories with 1 or more pages, thus creating their first "books".  They are encouraged to use the objects, booklets and 3 part cards to select words to create their own stories.
