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. Blah Blah Blah makes phonics fun.
Playing Blah Blah Blah!
Master phonics with these three decks of cards, ranging from easy to more difficult. Every card shows a word consisting of three letters (or groups of letters), e.g. b-o-x, b-oo-k, p-i-ck. 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! Special cards hidden in the deck can force you to skip your turn or draw more cards. Bonus feature: each card has a QR code at the back to help you pronounce the sounds.
