More than six step-by-step games, your child learns a group of sounds and to match it to its corresponding letter.
In this final ‘Know’ game from Level 1, your child swats the flies for the eight sounds: s, a, t, p, m, c, g, o.
Now, your child learns to blend (or glue) the sounds together to read unknown words.
In this game, your child will blend the sounds together to read the word and help the ghost find his house!
Next, your child will listen for the sounds in a word and learn to represent each sound with a letter – spelling! Your child says the word ‘pot’ and identifies that they can hear a ‘p’ sound which is represented by the letter ‘p’, an ‘o’ sound represented by the letter ‘o’, and so on…
With each correct answer, watch the Giraffe’s neck grow to eat the ice-cream!
Tricky words, such as ‘the’ and ‘was’, are difficult to decode but essential to learn because they are so critical in reading or writing a sentence. At Phonics Hero we call these ‘camera words’.
Here, your child reads the tricky words to help the witch make her magic potion.
Children learn to spell these tricky words so they can move onto writing sentences.
Here, your child is spelling tricky words to slime the babysitter!
