All About Core Flashcards



Do you want to work on core words with your student and/or child? Learning core and fringe words is key to effective communication. After writing my book, All About Core, I decided to create another product that highlighted these important words. These double-sided brightly colored flashcards can be used for a variety of different activities!

Here are some ideas!
1. Work on print awareness and phonemic awareness by modeling the letter on the card and then sounding it out. Using the visual cue will help students connect the letter and word with the corresponding picture.
2. Ask your student to think of another word that starts with the target letter. For example, if you are doing “L” for “like”, ask your student to tell you another word that starts with L.
3. Answer wh questions. For example, for the word “play”, “What do you like to play?”
4. Start a discussion about one word. For example, the word “need”. What are the things that you need? You can model “e.g. bathroom, shower, food, drink, etc.”
5. Work on decoding and reading fluency by reading the sentence on the back of the card.
6. Work on communication by practicing the word in a sentence on the child’s talker. For example, for the word “swim”, I can create the sentence…”I swim in a pool.” A child may also want to practice creating the same sentence on the card with their talker and/or voice.
7. Target upper and lower case of the alphabet. On each card, there is the upper case and lower case of the target letter.
8. Use gestural cues with the cards. For example, for the word “swim”, move your arms to show “swimming”.
9. Model core vocabulary in conjunction with the cards and the child’s talker and/or verbalizations.
10. Play a game by making a letter sound and your student/child has to find the correct card.

Last but not least, use the cards as a companion to my book, All About Core!

I hope you find these helpful!
