Printables for Phonics Readers and Folks with Dyslexia

The Get Tup to the Hall Gameboard makes reading flashcards fun.


FREE Downloadable and Printable


Join Tup the dog as Jan and her friends take him on a rambling walk to the library where he will participate in “Read to a Dog.” Try and catch the wayward chicken by pretending to be a plant or a train. And make sure to take lots of breaks to read to Tup. You’ve got time to go into the cave and scout around if you want, so put on your caving helmet and explore away. The game is over when you get to The Public Hall for Tomes of Tales (that’s the library in Tup’s city.) You can stop here, but Tup hopes you’ll keep reading to him.


Flashcards for rhyming and sight words available now with more flashcards on their way. You can even download and print blank flashcards with the chicken, bat, or Tup image on the back so you can personalize the activities to your child.

I have lots of plans for Free Printables. As a homeschooling mom who is teaching two independent-minded kids, including one with dyslexia, as well as writing a book series, I have more plans than time. I will be adding printables as I develop them.
