Sound Cards

                 
Parents:  Your child has been diligently learning these sounds in class.  You can use this
sheet to help your child sound out unknown words.  They may move their bodies around
to help them remember it better.  The actions help to solidify what they have learned as
well as providing them a link to access it quickly.  I will post this information
before the summer so your child could make flashcards to practice them periodically.
