Classroom teachers will find the set of cards useful as a supplement to their basal or "whole language" programs, especially for students who read well but who want to improve their spelling and writing skills. Each of the 70 cards in the set represents one of the 70 common phonograms identified by the late Samuel T. Orton. The front of each card in the set presents the phonogram, and the back of the card offers instructions for the teacher, tutor, or parent. (RS)
