Help a Hedgehog

help a hedgehogFrom Enter your own Phase 6 words. Click on the sand timer to start. A word will appear on the screen. Everyone blends and reads it and then you can press the tick and watch the hedgehog roll forwards and backwards, collecting things. The sand timer lasts just over a minute and the screen keeps a score. At the end it checks to see if you have beaten your previous score. Useful for the 'revisit & revise' or 'teach' parts of the lesson.

Fishy Phonemes

This is an interactive game in which you have to feed a fish. A picture appears in the top left hand corner. The graphemes from that word then appear in random order (with a distractor or 2), each in its own bubble. You use the up and down arrows to move the fish to feed on the bubbles in the correct order.

This resource is not designed for any specific sythetic phonics programme, but I have gone through each level and allocated it to a phase based on the most difficult word at each level. As there are generally only 1 or 2 words at the highest phase, this is not a resource to be used in discrete teaching sessions, but more as an adult initiated activity, which children can work on independently for consolidation of prior learning.

Levels 2 & 3 are equivalent to Phase 6
