Having worked hard to learn the sound and symbol relationship of the 21 consonants in the alphabet, it is no surprise that the older child with reading difficulties should find the concept of silent consonants difficult to master. This though is the challenge ahead.
In this programme, 24 different examples of silent consonants are featured. Each of the 24 talkingcards in this programme presents 3 words containing the same silent consonant pattern badge edge dodge. In all 12 consonants are included, moving from one position in a word to another. The talking cards are un-illustrated to provide a more grown up style for the older pupil. The teacher records the cards on the Language Master and the children can listen to the teacher voice over and over again and then record themselves on the student track.
