Listing Detail Tabs

Onset and Rime is an integral part of phonics knowledge. It introduces the idea of word families and lays down the foundations for good spelling strategies.

This 'Teaching Timesaver' which will be emailed to you as a .pdf file, is ‘a must have’ for Junior classes and teachers working with special needs students.

Manipulating Onset and Rime cards reinforces students understanding of the chunks in words as they 'make and break and remake' words.

Teaching onset and rime also helps students decode new words when reading and, spell words when writing, and they really enjoy it!

To make the pack even more versatile, the Onset and Rime cards use the NZ Basic Script font as recommended in the MOE Guidelines, so the cards can also be used for Handwriting Cards.

The pack contains

- 12 A4 Posters for display which show Onset and Rime for both Long and Short Vowels for each vowel

- 54 onset cards

-90 different colour coded rime cards

The cards only have a coloured border on three sides which identifies the letter(s) as onset or rime.

‘If I can Write ____ then I can write...’ cards for students to record their learning. (7cm x 20cm)


56 Word Family cards to cross-check matching activities - onset with rime. (7cm x 20cm)
These cards support students writing, in a way not found in the usual class dictionaries so are a great addition to the Writing Corner.
(Kids love to read the cards aloud so are a great independent activity.)
