WHICH IS WITCH? If your child struggles with homophones, try these cards created by a dyslexia tutor. Homophones can be very confusing for children, especially those who struggle with memorization. The picture cues used in these cards have been tested and proven effective, as they allow the child to use right-brain strength to recall a picture in place of a letter. The cards are fun to teach and learn with. They can be used by parents, teachers and tutors. These cards are excellent for emerging readers and children with different learning styles.Having a picture cue in the word helps the child read, because the visual cue relates to the meaning of the word. Not only is the picture tied in to the meaning, it is also put into context for comprehension when the parent/tutor reads out the sentence from the back of the card while the child looks at the picture. The most unique feature about these cards is that they actually help the child spell homophones. The cards are simple, uncluttered and fun for the child to look at and use. One of the best features about these cards is their ease of use. A parent can use these cards at home to teach their children. These flashcards give young children everywhere a fun way to learn the difference between homophone pairs. The pictures give children something tangible to hold on to, greatly reducing the time it takes to master spelling and reading of confusing homophones. Picture Homophones are also excellent for children with special needs and can easily be incorporated into any Orton-Gillingham-based program or any Reading & Spelling program by tutors.
