Phonics Activity Cards - Phase 1


Pre reading and writing skills are the building blocks for future literacy success 

The Phase 1 phonics cards support your child with developing phonological awareness - listening to and hearing different sounds. Your child will explore how sounds can be made, put together and broken down. 

Each phonics game is simple for you to set up and meaningful and engaging for your child. We enable you to teach Phase 1 Phonics using more than 40 activities. These phonics cards contain everything you need to get your child started with phonics. Your child will be having so much fun that they won't realise they are learning. 

The activities use items that you probably already have at home. Click here to see the full list of equipment for this pack.
