My Phonics Flash Card

Who’s it for?

Designed for children of any age who are keen to improve their reading and spelling.

What does it do?

The app is a fun, unique, and engaging way for children to practise their letters and sounds, as they do in school. Playing My Phonics Flashcards will help children to learn that one sound can be represented in several ways (e.g. 'ai' as in rain, make, way, angel, break), blend sounds to read words, and develop memory and concentration skills.

Sound snap

Learn to recognise sounds

Help Kipper collect matching words. Two flashcards are shown face up on screen. Snap if they contain the same vowel sound (for example ‘slide’ and ‘flight’ which both contain /igh/ sounds), or mark as a mismatch if they do not. This game helps learn sounds through comparison.

Sound detective

Sound out unfamiliar written words

Help Kipper pack his suitcase. Six flashcards are shown face up on the screen, and a vowel sound is played. Tap on the word containing that vowel sound. Sound detective teaches children to listen for sounds, which assists in later reproduction, and helps new readers to sound out unfamiliar written words.

Fishing

Improve your spelling

Help Biff catch the words. 6 flashcards are shown on screen and a word is played. Tap on the word that was read out to add it to Biff’s bucket. A more advanced game for children who can read or sound out a full word.

All cards

Practise reading and spelling with the flashcards

Familiarise yourself with the words in the app, flipping through the all cards section. A microphone button lets you record your children so that they can listen back to the words as they’re reading them. Use the cards as a prompt for reading or spelling tests outside of the prescribed app games.
