    These are great for the phonics screening check. Thank you! More alien words with the split digraph would be really helpful!

    Great resource! A fun way to approach phonics assessment and get a clear understanding of the way students break down words. I have recommended it (and a Twinkl subscription!) to several colleagues!

    I love the nonsense word cards. They really help the child focus on what they see and not just what they think they see. I especially like the fact that you use pictures of aliens and robots. Some children feel very uncomfortable reading these strange sounding "words" and I love spinning a story around the characters on the cards. (Four stars, only because I haven't had a chance to open this one yet. My computer takes a while to download these files.)
