I found a 1959 pack of phonics flash cards at a garage sale a few years ago and just rediscovered them in my craft pit room. I particularly love the test sheet and it has been perfect for a project I wanted to do requiring line drawings that are well beyond my drawing ability.
The funniest part is some of the images/words they use. I don't think you see pipe (as in the smoking kind) or gun as words on 2009 phonics quizzes.
And what is that thing to the left of the word "keep"? I was seriously stumped by the test.
Stay tuned tomorrow for what I did with the images (I gotta drag it out since I really am trying to post every day and all I did today was clean and cook--nothing especially blogworthy. Although, that reminds me that I am enjoying Swistle's cleaning posts and tweets. Maybe I can blog about my laundry pile or dustbunnies).
P.S. Where is the symbol for cents found? Why isn't it on my keyboard somewhere?
