How does Blah Blah Blah work?
Every card features a word consisting of three letters (or groups of letters). Each player takes seven cards. One card is placed face-up on the table with the rest of the deck in a pile, face-down. Players must play a card from their hand that contains at least one of the letters that are in the word on the table. The first player to get rid of all their cards wins. But beware! Wild cards hidden in the deck can force you to skip your turn or draw more cards.
Blah Blah Blah was developed with a unique proprietary algorithm by our machine learning team to make sure it works. And it was tested with teachers and kids to make sure they love it!
Why are phonics so important?
English consists of about 44 phonemes (sound variations), but more than 170 graphemes (different written representations for these sounds). This means that English has no strict one-to-one correspondence between letters and sounds, but it’s also not entirely irregular. It involves numerous patterns and regularities. Phonics is the method that helps children become aware of these regularities, and it’s proven to be very effective.
