Welcome to the English Blends Word game to help you learn and practice some of the easily confused sounds in English.
English Blends (consonant blends) can be difficult for young and second language learners, so trying to trying to teach or practice this in a fun and interactive way will help students learn this difficult concept.
English Play and Phonics Play is an important part of the learning process for children especially younger children. Taking difficult tasks and making them enjoyable, interactive and purposeful will gain quicker results than simple rote learning of a language. I hope by using phonics play these apps will go some way to helping you, your students or your children learn English is a fun and interactive way.
In this English Word game you will find four activities: This game helps by using phonics play for students to recognise letter sound relationships
Two are matching word games that ask you to match the picture and word for digraphs (Sh Wh Th Ch etc) and for consonant blends ( BR, BL, CR, CL and others)
Two are sound matching English sounds games. Here you have to match the sound of the word and the written word. This is great word game to start to learn the sounds of these blends.
These English games are designed to be played for a few minutes in class or at home and i hope they are useful to teachers and students.
Teaching Phonics in the home and the classroom is always a useful tool for students of English.
Using English games and word games keeps students interested and engaged. These apps are all English games, and are designed for teachers and students to focus on the skill not just on the word game or the phonics game.
They can be played at home and in the classroom, and please play these English word games little and often. Learning English takes time and these English games are just one tool that can help achieve that.
I am a teacher of English and do use these in my own teaching, as well as some others out there. I found that using English word games and activities has much better results, students learn better when they are having fun. We all do!
The English games i am making are aimed at teachers and parents to follow the little and often method of teaching these skills and phonic sounds.
The best way to do this is not to play and play and play these word games but to dip in once or twice a week to practice and learn. This is why i have kept them simple.
I hope you and your students/children have fun learning with these English and phonics games and that you are all reading in no time!
Please check out my other English word games and the Phonics games that will be coming soon.
