My Phonics Flashcards

Who’s it for?

Designed for children of any age who are keen to improve their reading and spelling.

What does it do?

The app is a fun, unique, and engaging way for children to practise their letters and sounds - as they do in school. Playing My Phonics Flashcards will help children to learn that one sound can be represented in several ways (e.g. 'ai' as in rain, make, way, angel, break). The app also teaches sound blending, memory and concentration skills.


Sound Snap Game

Learn to recognise phonetic sounds through comparisons

Help kipper collect matching words. Two flashcards are shown face up on the screen. Snap if they start with the same sound (for example ‘ant’ and ‘apple’) or mark as a mismatch if they do not. This game helps children learn sounds through comparisons.

Sound Detective Game

Learn to associate different sounds with words

The aim of the game is to help Kipper pack his suitcase! You need to decide which of the six flashcards shown represent the sound played. If you tap the correct card with the word containing the sound you put a card into Kipper's suitcase. Sound detective teaches children to listen for sounds which assists in later reproduction and helps new readers to sound out unfamiliar written words.

Fishing Game

Improve reading through practice

Help Biff catch the words. Six flashcards are shown on screen and a word is played. Tap on the word that was read out to add it to Biff’s bucket. This is a more advanced game for children who can read or sound out a full word.

Easy of use

Go through all cards to get familiar with the different words

By going through all the cards before you start playing the game you can familiarise yourself with the words in the app. This section can also be used as prompts for reading or spelling tests outside of the prescribed games. A microphone button lets you record your children so that they can listen back to the words as they’re reading them.
