Children will enjoy forming CVCC and CCVC words with this set. The cards are initially laid out with the yellow side facing up to show the picture of the CVCC or CCVC word. Children pick a card and identify the missing word. Children then form the word using a lace and beads, and lay the word on top of the card. All the words are taken from the suggested words in phase 4 of Letters and Sounds. Some of the words on the cards include phase three graphemes. All the cards are self-checking with the answers on the reverse of the card. The beads are orange and dark purple to match phases 2 and 3. Beads can be used independently to create pseudo words to check phonic recognition. Contains 100 beads, 25 double-sided cards (12 x 10cm) and 25 x 17cm laces.
