This fun phonics resource was found on the I can teach my child blog.
A lot of kids love playing with cars and will park and drive those cars everywhere. Combine cars and learning phonics by playing the car park game. This will help them with blending and segmenting.
For more details about how to create and play the game then click here: Car park game.
Monster tip: some children may find it easier to hear digraphs at the beginning of words but adding words with the digraph at the end can add an extra challenge.

There’s lovely craft project and phonics game over at The Imagination Tree blog
In the exercise, children create a magical machine that children use to rehearse letter-sounds.
But – oh no! The machine is now broken so children must make the sound with their voices! Try some different monster voices once you’ve got the sounds right.
Find out how to make and use the machine here: Alphabet Sound Machine
