Supplies for a Phonics Kit

In a plastic Sterlite file box:

In a 8 x 11 box in front of Sterlite file box:

  • Dice (two)
  • Transparent plastic bingo chips in assorted colors to use as markers for games. (Find them at Oriental Trading Company, or at Mardel.)
  • A container to draw word cards for sorts (an empty Extra Refreshers gum container works great)

Nice to have:

    • a magnetic whiteboard and letters.
    • card stock for printing word sorts.
    • 1″ circle punch for soccer word sort games.

The Super Tutor Tools Store at Teachers Pay Teachers has many resources I’ve created for tutoring reading. Most have a small charge, but there are freebies there too.

Download the free Silent e set, which includes resources on silent e from the Phonics Fun Folders set, a Space Race game board from the Phonics Patterns Game Board Set, a page from the Spot and Dot Phonics Patterns set, and a Soccer Sort Game. Add these sets for fun ways to learn phonics. Download a pdf Chart to see the options for resources at the Supter Tutor Tools Store at Teachers Pay Teachers.

More Free Phonics Resources:

  • Bookmark Set Freebie – These bookmarks include Write the Pattern activities for many Phonics Patterns.
  • Pattern Chart Set Freebie – These can be used as sort mats, posters, or printed on business cards for other sorts. Credits: Some artwork copyrighted by Mark A Hicks, illustrator, Used with permission. Sources for other graphics at Pinterest.


With a Phonics Kit you have the needed tools to help students learn reading skills!

I seek to create order from the chaos of complex information. Join me at the Daily PlanIt to gain insights, inspiration, and information to increase skills for a better life. I unlock the power of teaching reading with phonics in the pursuit of literacy at In my spare time I explore books and movies, often choosing titles available on both screen and page.
