Printable & Online Games  

Our printable review games and interactive online games are based on the same systematic phonics approach used to create all the resources in this site. Each game's content parallels the instruction that a child receives while completing successive phonics worksheets and levels of study. While providing a fun addition to any class, they have the same educational value as all other Phonics Fair worksheets and activities.

Phonics games for children can play a number of important roles in a class. They can be used to reinforce a child's vocabulary skills in a way that is stimulating and fun. After completing phonics worksheets, playing a game is a great way for kids to review each level. Teachers can also have kids play a game to check their understanding of target language.

It's important to consider that instead of being used as a kind of welcome break that follows "real" study, we offer phonics games online for kids to complete as the central activity in a class. They encourage kids to perform a total physical response (TPR) in response to audio and visual prompts. TPR is an invaluable way to help kids learn new vocabulary. It is popular with beginners and with young learners, although it can be used with students of all levels and all age groups.

Our games work well in beginner adult ESL and EFL classes. Students are engaged in an activity where they must focus and respond correctly in order to finish a game. This helps to keep kids motivated in the classroom. Although we recommend students to progress sequentially, there is no harm in allowing your students to play games from any level. You can integrate these activities in ways that match your own teaching style and the needs and abilities of your students.

We have created phonics games online for kids that are non-competive but challenging. Students need to listen carefully, check spelling and match images and words to complete each game. Most images that we provide in our interactive activities are clickable and read aloud.
In addition to helping develop a kid's vocabulary, this helps kids' listening and pronunciation skills.
