ESL Phonics Cards for Teaching Phonics


Boom Cards are a great digital phonics activity, perfect for online and distance learning. Clip cards are a hands-on, tactile way for students to practice consonant blends. Both phonics activities are self-checking and provide instant feedback for students. You can choose to use one or both!

Initial Consonant Blends Phonics Activities



  • l-blends: bl, cl, fl, gl, pl and sl

  • spelling

  • vocabulary words containing L-blends: blocks, blueberries, clock, clown, flag, flower, glue, gloves, planet, plane, slide and slug 

  • handwriting skills - as they record the correct answers on their worksheet

  • fine motor skills - as they hold, clip and flip the cards 



These clip cards are quick and easy to prepare and instructions are included. To prepare the clip cards, print on cardstock and cut around the edges and down the middle of the page to create two separate cards. Fold each card in half and glue it together. For extra durability, laminate the cards. (Full instructions are included.)

Students use clothespins or paper clips to choose the letter/letters missing from the given word, then flip the card to check their answer against the correct one given on the back.
