Mnemonics

These downloads contain sets of printable picture mnemonics which have been designed to help children remember grapheme-phoneme correspondences (GPCs).

The advantages of mnemonics you can print yourself:

  • you can print them onto any colour background
  • you can print as many copies as you need within the purchasing school (or as an individual)

These mnemonics are suitable for use with any phonics programme which does not provide mnemonics.

When you pay, you will be sent the teachers' notes and the graphemes to print on the back of the mnemonics. You will need to reply to the email to let me know the name you would like to be printed in small type at the bottom of the cards (this would be your school name if your school is purchasing or your own name if you are purchasing). The picture mnemonics will then be prepared and emailed to you within 7 days (although it is usually much sooner).

Grapheme Mnemonics Pack 1: Single Letters + qu

MnemonicPack1This download contains a set of 26 printable picture mnemonics which have been designed to help children remember grapheme-phoneme correspondences (GPCs). Each single letter grapheme has been changed into a picture of something beginning with the corresponding phoneme. There is a mini story to go with each picture and this teaches the children how to form the letter. You will also receive a number of versions of a writing mat you can use with the children.

The files are in PDF format.

Feedback from a teacher who has been using them for a number of years:

'The mnemonic cards are a super easy way for children to remember how to form the letters correctly. The short story hooks the children's imagination and embeds the learning so that it can be recalled at a later date. I have been using them successfully for a number of years. They are my 'go to' resource'.

Possible Uses:

  • For introducing a new grapheme during the 'teach' part of a phonics lesson.
  • For teaching letter formation either during a phonics lesson or handwriting practice.
  • For revising graphemes during the 'revisit and review' part of a phonics lesson.
  • For displaying in your teaching area and referring to during phonics lessons and writing sessions across the curriculum.
