Using akshara flash cards to make words

The class 2 children in this film clip are learning to combine the sounds of different aksharas to make simple written words in Hindi. The advantage with using akshara cards is that allow children to identify beginning sounds and ending sounds of words and then arrange the cards in that order, so that they make a meaningful word. Notice one little child who gets mixed up. It’s not quite as easy as it seems, especially for a beginner reader!
