Hands-on games and activities for early learners

At Phonics.com, we try to cater to all types of learners. We understand that some children work best when they utilise a combination of skills.

Here’s a list of five classic and fun games and activities that don’t need a screen or an internet connection!

Everyone’s favourite word game gets a colourful makeover. One side lets children match letter tiles on the grid. Turn it over, and older kids can come up with their own words like the original.

3. Boggle Junior
