What Makes our Phonics Games Different:

  • Our games are easy on fine-motor skills. We want to test phonics not hand-eye coordination!
  • We cover every aspect of phases 2-5 of Letters and Sounds and all 26 units of Playing with Sounds.
  • Many games shy away from teaching tricky words, spelling and sentences – these are core to Phonics Hero alongside the sounds and blending.
  • Children are stopped from jumping too far ahead; we ensure competency at the basics before moving onto more complex content.

Our Games Come in Two Orders of Sounds:


Letters and Sounds:

Playing with Sounds:

What Other Teachers Think

Valerie Whitehead, Juan Seguin Elementary, United States

I’m so excited – in a matter of one month of using the Child Accounts, my students’ reading levels have increased 1 reading level.

Laura Nelis, Knockmore Primary, UK

The children love Phonics Hero. I love how gradual it is, how it’s not too busy – it’s perfect for those children who need that extra help.

Lauren Stretton, Covenant Christian School, UK

The kids are loving the interactive games! The repetition is great and the consistency of the program means students know what to do but get excited about the new and different characters (they love Super Ted!).

Lorraine Ledwell, St Clare’s School, UK

I have only been using the Child Accounts for 6 months but my group has averaged an improvement of 3 stages in that time. Normally it would take a year to progress just 2 stages.
