These Flash Card Exercises for Pre-literate Students were
developed by Charles LaRue to meet a need for teaching materials
for students who have very limited English literacy skills,
and cannot read and write in their own language. They were
created to allow students who have never written in any language
to practice manipulating letter and text, at a time when their
writing is very slow and labored. These exercises allow them
work with letters, numbers and words in a way that is less
stressful than writing all the words out. Of course, they
need to learn to write and these flash cards can also serve
a models or template for that process.
All the materials are available in pdf for download.
