Phonics Activity Cards - Phase 3


An introduction to digraphs and trigraphs

The Phase 3 phonics cards introduce your child to digraphs (two letters that work together to make one sound) and trigraphs (three letters that work together to make one sound). However, don't be put off by the confusing terminology - these sounds are introduced in a simple and engaging way!

Each phonics game is simple for you to set up and meaningful and engaging for your child. Packed with over 40 activities, these phonics cards contain everything you need to get your child started with reading and writing. 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.
