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.
