Buried Treasure

Buried treasure game

Sound out and blend the word on the coin. Drag real words into the treasure chest, and fake words into the bin. Using fake words makes sure that children have to learn to blend rather than just recognise words by sight. See teaching ideas to accompany this game from Phonics Play.


Dragons’ Den

Dragons' Den game

You can choose which letter sets to work with, or even enter your own word list. The green dragon wants the eggs with real words, and the red dragon wants the eggs with fake words. See some useful teaching ideas for this game from Phonics Play.


Picnic on Pluto

Picnic on Pluto game

This is a great game for practicing blending. You can choose which sets to work with. Sound out the words and feed the fake ones to Obb and the real ones to Bob. You can get teaching ideas for this game from Phonics Play.
