What is included?

There are 12 different cards in this deck for you to use in class, online or to send to your students so they can listen at home.

The audio is recorded in Scottish Standard English.

This deck will be particularly useful for independent learning and learning to match words to sounds. The child can listen to the audio as many times as they like and can easily switch backwards and forwards between cards.

In online classes and therapy sessions, the clear and simple images can be used to talk about colours, animals and events. The cards can be used to work on predicting and sequencing skills too.

Try the Playable Preview to get a better idea of how it works.
