Word Lists A – Phonics, Literacy, Prep to Grade 3
Word List – Phonics is a free pack of 10 A4 pages of words in large print. They are suitable for any early primary school child. Reading aloud with a child helps him or her to learn common patterns of spelling. “Say the word, repeat the word.”
This helps to address the problem in many classrooms of learning words in isolation from each other.
Children start to “get it”. They find out that there is a logic and sense in the way words are written. So the first pack of 5 pages works on short words with short vowels – a, e, i, o, u. The second pack uses common spelling patterns such as words ending in -ay, vowel teams such as ai and ea or initial letter teams such as th and sh.
Reasonable duplication is permitted under this Copyright for teaching purposes for a group of any size.

- There is a brief guide at the top of each sheet.
- Frequency is the key to success.
