Jolly Phonics Tricky Word Games 1-20

I have been busy planning another game to help reinforce Jolly Phonics Tricky words 1-20. Variety is the spice of life after all!

I have yet to try out the games with my class but am dying to do so. I am saving them up for my Gingerbread Man unit. I though they were too cute to keep and decided to share them with you guys!

There are a number of different ways to use these cards:

  1. A word treasure hunt
  2. Concentration game
  3. Snap or Old Maid
  4. Flashcards or a Word Wall
  5. Word Headbanz

All of these games are explained in my pack. I have created two for you to choose from: black & white or full colour. You choose!

I hope that you have lots of fun learning and revising these Jolly Phonics Tricky words. Let me know that you think. I just love to get comments!

Have fun,

Miss Mernagh 🙂

Tricky Words 11-20

I have been busy doing my prep for the week to come. What a way to spend a Sunday, eh?! As my class have been playing with my first set of Tricky Words Bingo Boards for a little while now I thought that it was time to move on. My scheme for this term indicated a similar plan for the week ahead ;).

 Voila! Trick Word Bingo 1-20.

Monkey Match for Uppercase & Lowercase Letters

How about an online Concentration Game to help your child  match uppercase and lowercase letters? Children love this one!

Click on the coconuts to reveal a hidden uppercase or lowercase letter. When you make a correct match the coconuts disappear!

Drill and practice has never been so much fun! Monkey Match will have your child happily spending time developing both fluency and accuracy at upper and lowercase letter recognition. An added bonus, and the clue in in the title, is the fact that the game will engage your child and encourage the development of concentration and visual acuity (attention to detail necessary to see the difference between fat and cat, wish and dish, p and q, b and d).

Click here if you are just dying to play!

Why not take a visit to your local Euro Shop and search for some cute notepads or cut-out and make your own “non-digital” version? You could then make the game into a competition to see who can match the most!

Have fun,

Miss Mernagh 🙂

p.s Keep your comments coming. I am always delighted to hear how you are getting on

Magic E Work Pack

You might like to use my Magic E work pack with your class or with your child. It contains cutting, sorting, graphing, illustrating and writing activities.

It is a great way to encourage blending as there are 15 words in the pack. Some of them are real and some are nonsense. Children with reading difficulties, such as Dyslexia, often find it hard to distinguish nonsense words from real. They will need lots of practice to improve this.
