  1. Thanks for all these free resources...GBY!

  2. Hi Cathie,

    I am wondering what do the two-letter phonetic words on pink paper are for? Thanks.

    1. They are just words for the child to practice - If the teacher feels that the child could use it. You are welcome to keep them in or to take them out. The whole point of being exhaustive is to afford teachers the freedom to help the child wherever and however they need it.

  3. Thank you very much
