    Phonics Flashcards K, 1, 2

    I am curious what is done at HLS with the phonics flashcards. In grades 1 and 2, you need them for spelling and literature. In K you need them for phonics. Do I need 5 sets?

    (We are doing K, SC2, SC4, but my SC2 will likely move to MP1 by Jan).

    Can anyone think of a way to not have 5 sets?? 🤷🏻 🤪

    I think it would be quite the challenge if you had review piles to keep track of.

    I only have one student in each deck of cards, so it's never been a problem. In LoE, which we did last year, there are a million flashcards, and I always just took them out the morning of each lesson and put them back in order at the end of each lesson. If I needed to do review, I just took out the ones we needed (it took less than 60 seconds to find them all), and returned them to their proper numerical order at the end of a week or lesson. I think with 3 different levels, that would add a total of about 6-8 extra minutes of flashcard sorting and pulling each day. If that's okay with you, it could work.

    I would make a master list in a notebook with each child's name and under that write the number of the flashcard each child needs to work on for the week or lesson or book. As a child masters a phonogram, put a check next to the number and don't gather it the next day, but at least if you want to do a cumulative review, you have the numbers written down. As a child moves to a new story or spelling list (at least in MP2, the phonics work pairs with literature guides or spelling lists), turn the page and write the child's name again and under it all the new phonograms' numbers.

      Coming on here specifically for this question. I have 2 using the flashcards this year and NO extra time to mess around with flashcards. Looks like I might need to buy another set.

      I would love to bump this thread to see what others are doing.

        Yes! I'm still wondering how the teachers at HLS are using them! Do they only have 1 set? Do they have 2 (for 1st and 2nd).

        The problem with pulling out every day, is that you are technically supposed to have a "mastered pile", learning pile, new pile, etc. It's hard to do that with only 1 set? I'm just really curious if the teachers figured out a better system!

          Teachers at HLS have one set of cards. They pull the cards to be used for the week in both the spelling and literature Phonics lessons. At the end of the week they file those back into the pack and pull the next week’s cards to have them ready to go. If a sound was particularly difficult they may keep that one to review again. But they don’t keep a pile of mastered cards and ones that need review. There is always review woven into the lessons, so they file back into the complete set.

              I bought the other set. Perhaps if I didn't have so many kids I would have the time to use only one set. But I don't.
