Phonics for kids

Through the use of phonics, kids learn to read, analyze sounds, and spell new words. At Turtle Diary, we offer a variety of phonics games to help your child better understand the sounds of the English language. Our collection of online phonics games includes 'Phonics Memory', 'Phonic Sound' and 'Phonic Train,' to name a few, all of which aim to help kids build their language skills. Through these phonics games online, students will gain a deeper understanding of the relationship between letters and sounds while also having fun.

Fun Phonics Games and Activities for Early Readers

Phonics is an important skill to master for younger learners who are just showing signs of being able to read. After mastering their letter identification, the next step in the process is to learn the sounds that each letter makes in the English language and how they blend together in various ways. Vowels have more than one sound, and this can be difficult for kids to master. Since English is not a phonetic language, learning the patterns and rules associated with the combinations of letters and spelling is essential to mastering the skills needed for reading.
Turtle Diary offers a variety of phonics videos that go letter by letter, sound by sound, presenting each in a fun and entertaining way. Kids will love to watch the animated graphics and hear the letter pronounced by sound and show different words associated with it, and then the word used in a sentence. They also offer videos with vowel-consonant combinations, diphthongs, short and long vowels, and Digraphs, along with other tricky intricacies of the language. The videos present an enjoyable way for kids to experience these rules in a multi-sensory approach.
Once the videos have been exhausted, kids can move onto incredibly fun phonics games where they can put their skills to practice. Favorites include Phonics Memory, where they can both learn and practice the sounds of letters and match them with corresponding pictures in a traditional memory-type game. Partners in Rhyme encourages kids to find rhyming words and those with the same end sounds, with each page offering three pairs of rhyming words. Kids click to match the words with rhyming sounds in succession on each page. As they click each card, the words are read aloud and then vanish if the correct match was made. It is the perfect way to practice their growing phonics skills in a fun and stress-free environment.

Improve Pronunciation

In phonics one learns to read based on the sounds that the letters represent. It is a great way to teach kids the relationship between letters and their sounds. Phonics will help kids improve their pronunciation and thus the ability to read correctly. It will also help kids to learn and spell new words quickly as kids will be able to easily spell out the new word when they have grasped the letter sounds.

Learn Alphabet Sounds!

Kids can pronounce correctly only when they are well aware of the sound that each letter represents. Through these games kids will learn the sounds of each letter besides learning various new words. A good knowledge of the sounds of each letter of the alphabet will also improve the kid's writing skills.
