The Student Card Pack contains all of the cards needed for use with the Patterns program. The cards are useful for immediate recognition of common patterns found in English words and can be used for visual and auditory drill in order to promote fluent and accurate reading and spelling.
The set contains almost four hundred 3 2/3 x 4 1/4 inch cards of the most commonly used consonant and vowel patterns that carry specific sounds (phonograms), as well as prefixes, suffixes, and Latin and Greek roots (morphemes), which are found in many thousands of multi-syllabic words. The 100 most frequently used non-phonetic or irregular words are also included. Each phonogram contains a key word, and definitions and key examples are provided for morphemes.
The Student Card Pack can also be used for supplemental practice with other reading programs.
