With our engaging first grade phonics games, your child will build essential reading skills while they focus on scoring points and beating the challenge. Explore and reinforce what your child has learned about letter-sound relationships, long and short vowel sounds, digraphs, and reading comprehension in these first grade phonics games that your child will love playing again and again.
Phonics is fundamental to becoming a successful reader. Once your child has a solid understanding of the sounds each letter can make--individually and together--reading and learning new words will seem far less intimidating. In our library of first grade phonics games, created by educational experts specifically to meet first graders' learning needs, your child will explore letter sounds while the interactive game play keeps them interested from start to finish. Start by reviewing common digraphs (two letters that combine to form a single sound, like "th" or "ch"), and then dive into long and short vowel sounds. These phonics skills are essential concepts for reading proficiency. Focus on developing listening skills for beginning, middle, and ending sounds with CVC words (consonant-vowel-consonant words, such as dog, cat, and pig). Finally, bring it all together with a reading comprehension activity that lets your child apply everything they have learned. Looking for more reading challenges for your first grader?
