I made this phonics set for my kids below grade 6 (in Japan).
Maybe you can use them for your kids. There are 6 words per letter. Except for 'X' (of course), the phonic sounds are all in the initial position. Where it is not obvious what the word is, I've typed the word in small print for the teachers' benefit.


I always do some gestures for each word, like pretend to eat the hamburger, or copy the lemon's gesture. The kids copy me accordingly (with laughter).

We usually do one letter per week and one word from each of the previous 6 weeks. So, we do a total of 12 and it staggers through the alphabet as the weeks progress.


The above downloadable printable is best suited for elementary school and kindergarten at Beginner (pre-A1) level. It is valuable for practising Phonetics (pronunciation, IPA, phonetic symbols) in English, and is a valuable material for working on your students' Listening and Speaking skills.

I taught English in Japan for eight, hard years. It was a great experience, but then I basically burnt out and moved back to Australia. Still have a lot more material to upload but haven't got around to it yet.
