The posters are divided into sections: consonants, vowels (open and closed), consonant combinations, vowel-consonant-e, vowel pairs, vowel-r, final stable syllable, and special situations. This supplemental resource is used in conjunction with the Reading Deck cards in the Reading by Design intervention program.  This resource is a smaller version of the Reading by Design Reading Rules Posters.
