Onset and rime classroom materials.  This resource package is designed to support vocabulary, reading and spelling development for pupils in Years 3 & 4, particularly those pupils who are struggling and need to revise onset and rime / address gaps or improve speed and automaticity.  Reading words aloud, breaking words apart, looking for patterns, paying close attention to the spelling can help pupils map words.  Orthograhic mapping helps improve automaticity.


  • There are no images included.
  • The cards should prove to be a useful resource for discussing differences in word meanings and spellings.
