Mr. Burkhart Jr.

"Okay, Mom, now you sit down and let me be the teacher!"
"Okay, teacher's friend, how would this word spell like?"
"C-A-T.. Ca..Ah..Tt! CAT!"
"That spells CAT!"

Yes. There are pictures on the back of the cards. However,  since we have been working through the Beginning Readers BOB Books series, he gets many of them without the picture clues. Today he spelled, then read, "car", "cat", "cow", and "man" by making the sounds of each letter to sound them out! He is just gleeful to turn them around and see that he was right! He no longer gets confused by upper and lower case letters. He is on his way to Pandora's Box of literacy! I am so proud of him!
