Phonics plays a big role in first grade reading. This year, your first grader will learn how to blend consonant-vowel-consonant words, called CVC words. Examples of CVC words are ran, pan, and fan. They will also learn short vowel sounds, such as bat, fin and jet. Being able to tell the difference between short and long vowels is another key skill covered in first grade. These first grade phonics games are designed to cover all these phonics concepts for a variety of learning types. Kinesthetic learners will enjoy dynamic and engaging game play, while visual and auditory learners can connect words to sounds in this colorful online environment. If your child needs additional support with reading, try our first grade sight words games
