Today I am sharing an easy way to support your instruction and your students' learning! Visual references are essential to supporting retention of literacy skills - particular for students with learning disorders and language-based deficits. If you have purchased any of my phonics materials, you have likely noticed that I always include a "visual reference poster" for display during instruction with that particular skill. I always encourage keeping these visuals available on anchor charts, bulletin boards, or walls throughout the school year so students can consistently revisit them as needed.
Today, I am focusing specifically on those visual aids. I have compiled my visual reference posters for a variety of phonics skills into one complete package!
This resource includes reference posters that correlate to a variety of phonics skills. If you are only interested in the visual aids, this product is for you! Simply print each poster onto standard 8.5 x 11 paper or cardstock, laminate (if desired for durability) and display on a wall, bulletin board, anchor chart, etc.
But this is my favorite part...
Unique to this product is a miniature version of each poster as well! These can be printed, laminated (again, if desired for durability) and attached with a silver binder ring.
This creates a portable version of the entire set of visual reference posters. It's ideal for small-group phonics instruction and on-the-go teachers.
I am thinking, particularly, of interventionists or specialized teachers who may visit different classrooms throughout the day or classroom teachers who may change location to teach particular groups/classes. You need something that is easy to transport, doesn't take up much room, but is still an effective tool to support your instruction!
