    Letters/blends/team tiles

    Has anyone found tiles/cards that fully match the Traditional Spelling colors, including red for vowel teams and blue for consonant teams/blends? I can recreate a file I made a couple of years ago, but it will involve changing all the colors around so I thought I should check here first.

      They handle the blends differently. In TS, the r-controlled blends are still red since vowels are involved. I don't want the kids to get used to a different setup and then get thrown a curveball when they start TS.

        Oh yes, good point. I remember this being confusing when we did it, so I kept the AAL colors, since she was used to those. My son has not had that, so when he does it, we can use some of the tiles, but not all.

          I love our Logic of English letter tiles, but the r-controlled vowels are purple to show that the sound changes and the vowels get closed off by it. It hasn't bothered my kids at all. They also don't have blend tiles because each consonant still says its own sound. They do have digraph tiles, though. They differ on ough and augh, too. They don't separate the gh as /f/. Because I taught my daughter 1.5 years of LoE, she thinks the TS/FSR approach is weird, so we do a blend. Now, after MP2 Lit guides and TS2, she is correctly labeling the endings like el, le, and al as red. Those would be red AND blue separate letter tiles in LoE as well.

          I vote MP should make their own set because they're really helpful with our kiddos who don't do writing so well.

            One thought is you could buy the AAR set of tiles and request some extra blank red and blue tiles. I think you would need to call to get them individually. Generally if you call in with a purchase they will send you up to 5 individual tiles. You could then write in sharpie (or a label maker as the tiles are slick) the r controlled on red and any missing consonant teams on blue. I have only used AAR/AAS so far, but I did notice TS divides the phonograms differently and adds some different combinations.

              We discussed the proposition of colored tiles for use with the Traditional Spelling program back when the program was in development but Cheryl did not think they were necessary for the regular program and felt a better use of time was to write the colorful words. Also, we endeavor not to add a bunch of extra items to our packages that would cost an arm and a leg to produce and therefore cost an arm and a leg to purchase. Our classrooms didn't feel they would be the best use of time. However, for a student who needs that visual or the manipulatives these would be useful. I agree that if your child needs this extra practice making your own tiles that follow the TS color coding would be best so as not to confuse your student.

                Okay, will do. But if these could be made/sold for SC packages, it would be a HUGE help.

                  I had to edit my earlier post to say "Cheryl Lowe" and I talked about tiles. Additions to the SC line would be an entirely different discussion but one we will take into consideration. Thank you for the suggestion.

                    Yes, for SC Tanya and I discussed tiles in the very beginning! We would love to provide these. However, for all of the reasons Michelle T offered tiles are not currently included.

                    Perhaps some day....

                      I am thinking Montessori moveable alphabet. These are even cursive, but not New American. I think if you google further, you might find the right color combination. I had these at one point, and there is a particular tackle box, with curved edges they fit in.
