Useful high frequency and tricky words MINI POSTERS (PDF)

Here are a selection of posters (A4 size) for your main phonics reading, spelling and writing DISPLAY WALL. These are taken from a specific strand of over 200 systematic WORD BANK posters already provided throughout the 12 units of the Phonics International programme entitled MINI POSTERS. Whilst this selection of over 40 posters is offered freely, please consider the value for money and the level of support offered by access to the full systematic Phonics International programme! These posters can be used with any synthetic phonics programme. Note that the Phonics International programme can be used to supplement or complement any synthetic phonics programme.

High frequency and tricky words SPELLING POSTERS (PDF)

Here are 15 posters (A4 size) focusing on the spelling of a selection of high frequency (common) words. These posters are newly designed (May 2012) and they are additional to the existing Phonics International programme’s bank of resources. The font on these posters is the new ‘Debbie Hepplewhite’s print font’. Of course these posters can be used with any synthetic phonics programme.
