  • I love this resource and it has already helped to consolidate meaning with some of my SALT children. However (and I hate to be grammar witch) I have an issue with one word 'faint'. Is the intention of this one to convey weak or hard to see? If it is the second option then the word should be 'feint'

    • Hi avalonjuice,
      Thank you so much for getting in touch! It's lovely to hear from you :)
      The word 'faint', according to the Oxford Dictionary, means, "barely perceptible". I hope this helps!

This fab set of word cards features different calligrams in different fonts to match their meaning. Use them to help your children familiarise themselves with each word and it's appropriate context. Why not have them extend the set by writing their own words in different styles?
