PDF of four phase 4 phonics games ideas with instructions
Phase 4 phonics can feel trickier to teach than phonics phases 2 and 3, because there are no new letter-sound correspondences (grapheme-phoneme correspondences) to learn.
This is a teaching phase designed to consolidate and build on all previous learning, challenging children to read longer words, and a larger bank of tricky words, ‘at a glance’.
Put simply, phase 4 phonics is all about building children’s confidence and capacity to read more words.
They will be applying these in slightly longer sentences, using the letter-sound correspondences that they already know.
Use these games when teaching phase 4 phonics, and help your pupils master blending and segmenting words.
