We understand that you won’t always have access to an electronic device and that you may not always want your children having too much screen time, however good the educational content of the game may be. Or you may be a teacher looking for phonics games for your teaching assistant to play with a group of children. With this in mind we have also developed a set of ‘offline’ games with themes and game play related to the online interactive games. As we continue to add more online games, we will also add corresponding themed games to accompany them. We have many more of these games in the pipeline so watch this space as we add more!

There are many other ways you could use the games. Maybe you could send a picture or feedback on how your children or your class enjoyed them? We are always looking to improve our games so do give us your feedback at support@thephonicsgamer.co.uk.

Enjoy!

Further Information

Further information

Some of the games come with multiple sets of cards so the games can be used to work on a range of phonics objectives. For example, the Cargo Capers offline game can be used to work on high frequency words, tricky words or words with a chosen grapheme.

In order for the games to last, it is suggested that they be printed and laminated so they can be used again and again. Ideally, they should be printed on A3 size but they are designed to work equally well when printed in A4 size.

Suggestions for use:

In the classroom:

  • Group work during phonics / literacy lessons
  • Intervention group work – have your TA play the games with an individual or group of children.
  • Paired work – children can play the games with each other.
  • Adapt the games as needed with different card sets to match the learning objective of the lesson.
  • Have the games available in your literacy area, choosing area or the place where you keep extra work for when children finish.

At home:

  • Have fun and learn at the same time and play them with your children. This can include playing our online games or the practical games provided here.
  • Siblings can play together. If you have an older sibling, they can help support their younger brother or sister with their phonics learning.
  • Take them with you on holiday / travel so you can have fun and keep up with your child’s phonics learning.
