I am now, after more than 5 decades in the work force, officially semi-retired. New hobby: gardening. Old hobby restarting: table tennis. I still have some classes to teach and materials to design, many of which I will continue to share with the dear members of ESLPs. You may come across my materials on Facebook and my blog.

Marva Collins Phoneme Cards 29-32 of many

The reason I think these are also useful for older students is that it allows them to gain an insight into spelling and phonics and through that the confidence to...

Mini Book 12: Zimbabwe in colour and greyscale
I have rewritten this 2005 story to make a suitable for a mini book. This story uses only single letter sounds apart from the long o sound in gold and tobacco, so early readers and dyslexics should have little difficulty in reading it. For reading comprehension interact with the children like this: Where is Zimbabwe? What 3 big cats live in Zim...

These worksheets often use the same vocabulary as my "Circle Sounds Puzzles", this is the way it should be when teaching spelling, phonics and vocabulary.
