CVC flashcards....tiny words for tiny fingers!

I'm really bad at following set out methods or curriculum, and so tend to mash things together that work for myself and kiddos as we go along inshaAllah. This always seems to be my way!
I don't believe there is one right way to teach children how to read, but hey what do I know, I'm only a home-school mum so don't take me too seriously!

Although it was only a couple of years ago, I can't actually remember what process we went through to teach my eldest to read! I know didn't know what I was doing at all, and remember a lot of the time panicking,  but Alhamdulillah Allah made it easy!
When I look back now, I scratch my head, thinking, just what did we do?

I remember one of the first things was I found 100 high frequency words online and printed them off to use as small flash cards to help develop her sight reading. I think I have since binned these...I don't know why I did.....I must have figured I would find a different way to teach the next one in line! (I know myself too well!)

 With my next child, I've decided before I get to the frequent words, to concentrate a little more on reading simple CVC words inshaAllah.

With this is mind, I put together a set of 105 easy CVC words which I'll print off and laminate tomorrow inshaAllah. I colour matched the letters to go with the learning resources movable alphabet I purchased a couple of years ago (instead of the Montessori moveable alphabet as it was cheaper! -The only key difference is, the consonants are in blue and vowels are in red, which is the opposite of the Montessori layout.).
I thought we could use the flash cards to sound out, and also use to copy using the movable alphabet.

As always, I'm putting up the file for free download if it will be of benefit to anyone inshaAllah. I also made another set in line with the Montessori colour scheme.
