A whiteboard with letters of the alphabet along the bottom. Call out a sound and get your child to click the letters to make the corresponding grapheme appear on the whiteboard. If your child knows more than one grapheme for a sound,you might ask him/her to make them all eg ai, a, ay. If your child is finding it hard to remember the new grapheme, you could help by clicking one of the letters and asking him/her to put in the one that goes in front/after.
