Description

These flashcard have three rhyming words on each card for practice with spelling patterns. The three words share the same short vowel sound and the same final consonant or digraph. Most word families have two separate cards, six words in total, which share an ending sound.

The word families are divided into 5 sets, grouped by vowel sound, with a different colour border for easy sorting. Each set includes 3-, 4- and 5-letter words. Most word families include at least one word with a consonant blend (fl-, gr-) and/or consonant digraph (sh-, wh-, th-, ch-).

Lastly, matching spelling pattern cards are included at the end of each set.
