Just in case there is anyone out there who cares :) I have updated my set of Orthodox phonics cards so all the letters are there. These do not correspond to the Letters of Grace plan, as I had already developed them before being asked to join that project. I had plans to create a full reader to go with them, and may still complete that project, but for now I am putting my efforts into the work on LOG. If I find the time when the first phase of LOG is complete, I will finish the reader and share it. For, now, here are the completed cards for those of you who downloaded an incomplete set. They are not nearly as nice as what we will soon be sharing, but are one more tool a parent might use in teaching their child. I could not find a "Qu" saint with an icon available (a nice part of LOG, having a talented young artist create custom paintings!) so I reused an icon of the Theotokos as Queen. I did not want to change the letter Mm card, as they were designed to be worked through in order beginning with M, and I really like the idea of starting with Mary. Also, a few of the saints have been changed due to personal preference :)

This is a really nice resource. I really love your use of Mary as Queen for the Qu sound. I also always thing of Quadratus pf the 70when I think of Qu. There is a nice Bulgarian icon of him on this German wikipedia entry: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quadratus_von_Athen

I love that the web is truly World Wide! By the way, this article lists his Orthodox date as Sept. 22, but I think it's usually listed as Sept. 21 or Jan. 4. At least that's how the Russian Patriarchate and the OCA list it. I'd trust them before a German wiki entry!

That should have been Quadratus OF the 70. Typing isn't my strong suit late at night!

thanks - I was going to use Quadratus, but could never find an icon! I may go in and change that one :)
