607 SnapWords Pocket Chart Cards provides you with 643 high-frequency words embedded in colourful images. SnapWords® are designed for all children, but are life-savers for those who struggle to sound out words, who can't remember words they have studied, who find reading boring and slow, or who don't have good reading comprehension. SnapWords® make it easy for children to recognise words instantly and help them comprehend what they read. SnapWords® allow children to learn using their learning strengths.
The images embedded into each word help children learn sight words as easily as a camera snapping a picture. This is vital for children who need to learn whole words before they can break them down with phonics. The reverse of each card displays the plain word without a visual and describes a body motion for the word – necessary for many kinesthetic learners and children with dyslexia. In addition, a sentence using the word and coordinating with the visual on the front of the card focuses children’s attention on the meaning of the word and how it is used in everyday communication.
This complete set contains 643 high-frequency sight words, including all 220 Dolch words, 500 Fountas & Pinnell's most frequently recurring words, 300 Fry instant words and some extra high-frequency words.
Ability levels include Preschool through Third Grade.
The best thing is that it isn't just about learning sight words! If you use SnapWords® Mini-Lessons (included in the kit), the children will not only learn to recognise sight words instantly, but they will spell them correctly, will practice writing with them, will understand what they mean, how to use them in sentences, and they will learn phonics concepts for each word! Imagine how this will boost their reading!

Note from the designer:
"I used SnapWords® Pocket Chart Cards when working one-on-one with a child, in independent centers where children could partner up and help each other learn the words, and also in writing centers where I would either arrange the words in phrases for children to practice reading, turning over a card at a time until they could read the plain words, OR making a mixed-up phrase for them to unscramble with a partner. My students LOVED working with SnapWords® and made huge gains in their reading fluency."

Customer reviews: "
My children LOVE learning with these cards! Thank you so much for creating a simple & effective way to learn. I wish these had been around when I was younger." "Your snapwords cards have CHANGED my daughter's life. She could not read anything before we started with them, now she can recognize and spell most of set A on her own and is working through set B now. Thank you!!!!"
"I am pleased to say that my son for the first time said the other day that he actually is liking to read. He had struggled with his sight words since beginning to read. He heavily uses his phonetics and can read very large words, but has always had a problem with the sight words. Since getting the sight words and sentence book over Christmas break, we started to use the cards when we started back to school in Jan. He is reading so well and we are on list C already and almost done with it. He is reading much more fluently. Thank you so much, this has truly been a blessing for all of us."
"I love the flash cards and my 5 year old daughter has learned very quickly. She wasn't with regular flash cards and I was told her attention span was too short. Not the case. Not only is my daughter learning but with your flash cards she went from not being able to recognize words such as "is" and "an" but in just 3 weeks she is now recognizing all of the level A words and is working on the level B words. She is also spelling without looking at her flash cards 30 of those words!"
