Learning phonics from a book can prove to be both difficult and overwhelming to a non-reader of any age, especially one with dyslexia or other learning challenges. Having fun with learning phonics is a great way to reduce the stress and have fun in the process.
Learning Phonics with Games that Keep Building on the Basics
Learning phonics is more than the 26 letters of the alphabet. Within our complex language, there are vowel blends, vowel digraphs, vowel-consonant blends, special rules that change the normal sounds of the familiar sounds of the alphabet and so much more.
When choosing phonics games, you will want to consider products that will build on each other. Although learning the sounds of the basic alphabet is a great thing to be teaching, you need to look further than those individual sounds and broaden the learning to more complex part of reading.
These Phonic Games are the perfect tool in having fun while learning phonics. They come in sets of All Phonics Games, 10 Beginning Phonics Games, 10 Intermediate Games, or choose individual game decks for specific phonemes (phonics sounds). When determining where you child needs to focus, consider using this download to identify the letters or combinations of letters that your child needs to master.
Adding the Fun Factor While Learning Phonics
You can use these Phonic Games to play the popular games of Go Fish, Memory, Old Maid and War to increase the fun factor while learning phonics.
A few other ideas of ways to use the Phonic Games are to place 10 or more cards, where the child can see each card. Ask the child to hand you the card that says… “The sound of the card you want”. The child can then look through the options and choose the card that they believe makes that sound. As the child grows in learning phonics, you can add more options to the pile.
Using the Phonics Games, use the concept of Path of Math in adding more fun factor to learning phonics.
The more you drill these parts of phonics, the more accomplished the non-reader will become, moving confidently into the world of a good reader.
