5.0 out of 5 stars Key To Unlock Reading. 7 May 2011
By bluyonda VINE VOICE
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
Content synopsis, ideas and words used:

Enclosed advice card outlines how best to use, listing all 100 Key Words; in the order in which they should be introduced. Taken from this card:

" You can begin by selecting words important to your child, making your own cards if necessary. These could include your child's name, the name of their pet or 'mummy'. Explain what the words say and talk about the letters and sounds. Can your child recognise the words as you hold up the cards? Can he or she pick them out from a small group of other flash cards?"

"You can also use the cards to make short sentences together: I am big/little. It is old/new. We have one/two. You can see Peter and Jane doing this in book 4C".

All lower case in their groups according to the first word in each pair...

a/can, and/came, he/could, I/come, in/do, is/did, it/first, of/down, that/get, the/from, to/him, was/have.

All/not, are/his, as/one, at/on, be/so, but/said, for/we, had/they, with/has, you/go.

About/here, an/her, back/into, been/if, before/like, big/just, by/look, call/little, made/went, make/well, me/what, more/were, much/where, must/when, my/who, new/which, no/will, now/your, off/some, old/she, only/them, or/their, other/there, our/then, out/two, over/this, right/want, see/up.

Card Height 10cm Length 15.5cm. Flexible thin card with laminated wipeable finish and rounded edges.

An example of letter size 'l' height 32mm, 'm' height 23mm width 30mm. Letters vary within these sizes, I hope this gives you an idea. Thickness of letters 3mm and jet black. Card backgrounds are brilliant white.

I purchased two packs to give greater scope for sentence building.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential buy for children 1 Jan 2010
I would highly recommend these flash cards along with the Ladybird Keywords series of books (all 36 of them). Essential to make sure your child progresses at a good rate regardless of what they are doing at school, a good way for them to gain extra confidence for the classroom.

5.0 out of 5 stars The old ways are the best ways 15 Mar 2011
By Kirsty
These flashcards are fantastic. Our son is Y1 and is showing lots of signs of dyslexia. School uses Oxford Reading Tree which is doing nothing for him at all. I bought these because we learnt with Peter and Jane (35 years ago) and I am not disappointed. It is simple but he is recognising so many words that he just hasn't picked up before. The books in this Key Words series are also excellent. Very 70s, but sweet, and THEY WORK! Couldn't recommend this more highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good 14 Nov 2010
I had been looking for Oxford Reading Tree key words. Having bought their word games flash cards I was a bit disappointed as they were quite limited, probably because they are games and therefore two of each card. However, having now bought these Ladybird ones they are so much better. They are all the key words needed for reception (without Floppy, Biff, Chip etc) Excellent quality and my daughter loves them. If you are looking for keyword flash cards, these are the ones!

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 31 Oct 2011
I absolutely LOVE the Ladybird Key Words reading scheme. I taught my daughter to read with it long before she began school. She loved the books and the fact that she could read the simple "stories" herself. I've begun teaching my grandson to read using the same system. So when I saw the "Key Words with Peter and Jane" flash cards at four quid, well, great.
Oh boy what a let-down.
Firstly, and for me a bit irritatingly, there are 100 key words, but only fifty cards (and yes, I should have realised from the picture of the front cover of the pack, or by reading one of the reviews). So each card has two different words on it, one on each side. Looking through the cards for the words I want means having to look on the back of the cards as well. Perhaps a small point, but be careful not to show the wrong side of the card to a child, because that would confuse rather than assist. And as time goes on, and the child's ability to read increases, you may need the same card twice, and they'd be mixed in with the cards that you still only need one side of. I think that it'll get just a bit messy to try to manage the process (but at least one other reviewer has a completely different take on it).

But the two main issues I have are, firstly, the typeface isn't quite the same as the Peter and Jane books. I'd have thought that it would be MUCH more understandable to a young child to see exactly the same `picture' of the word. And the letter `t' for example is completely different. The book typeface has a curled bottom to the letter, the flash cards have the letter `t' as a simple vertical line with the crossed top. No problem for an adult to understand, but I'm not the one trying to understand the concept of the written word.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential 8 Jan 2014
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
These are ideal for helping a child learn to read. I used these to teach my children to read at ages 2 and 3, as a second stage of the process. For the first stage I used thick red felt tip pen on A4 paper, and labelled everything at home. Once they could read a good number of words I reduced the size of the text while increasing the vocabulary. Then the flash cards came into their own, as a fun game where the kids had to shout out the word as fast as possible. They loved it. Now my grandson is learning to read.
