    Switch Sounds Cards

    (Irregular Words)

    The Switch Sounds cards utilize images, colours, and sounds from the Bluewater Phonics resource collection. The design of the cards illustrates that predictable letter-sound relationships can be found in almost all words. The part of each word that is less predictable is highlighted with colour and graphics. Arrows and tabs help learners navigate the process of switching from a predictable letter-sound relationship to one that is less familiar. In practicing moving between the two versions of each word - the way it sounds and the way it is spelled - learners can build their understanding that speech sounds can be spelled in different ways.

    Product Content:
    High frequency words that include spelling that is predictable yet infrequent, conditional, complex, and unpredictable.
