Grade 2: Skills Spelling Cards
Spelling Cards are to be used with Code Flip Books in Units 1–6 of the Grade 2 Skills Strand. These Spelling Cards are the size of a deck of cards. As referenced in individual lessons, teachers will be directed to tape these cards to each Code Flip Book as they explicitly teacher the sound spellings.

Grade 2: Skills Code Flip Book: Vowels
The Vowel Code Flip Book will be used in Units 1–6 of the Grade 2 Skills Strand to review vowel sound/spelling correspondences with the entire class. It may also be used at any time during the year with individual or groups of students in need of targeted remediation and practice.

Grade 2: Skills Code Flip Book: Consonants
The Consonant Code Flip Book will be used in Units 1–6 of the Grade 2 Skills Strand to review consonant sound/spelling correspondences with the entire class. It may also be used at any time during the year with individual or groups of students in need of targeted remediation and practice.

Grade 2: Skills Individual Code Chart
In Units 1–6 of the Grade 2 Skills Strand, students will use the Individual Code Chart to record the vowel sound/spelling correspondences they have learned. As students learn or review code knowledge, they are asked to use markers to trace over the sound spellings to acknowledge learning them. By the end of Grade 2, students will have traced over all of the sound spellings in the Individual Code Charts. These charts are a good way for students to have at their hands a guide to help them remember what they have learned. You may wish to encourage students to refer to the Individual Code Chart when reading and writing.

Please note: Media disks have been replaced by the digital versions of the Flip Books.
