This phonics game is a great way to add some movement and energy into your lessons. It’s also a great way to help your students learn any phonics concept quickly and easily. All you need for this game are some index cards, a fly swatter, and a black marker.

Getting Started:

To get started with this phonics game, simply write your letters or phonemes on the index cards with the black marker. This phonics game can be used with any phonics concept. Once you have your letters or phonemes written on the cards, place them face down on a flat surface.

How to Play

Next, have your students take turns choosing a card and swatting it with the fly swatter. As they swat the card, they must say the letter or phoneme out loud. After they’ve said it correctly, they can keep the card. The goal is to collect as many cards as possible. The student with the most cards at the end of the phonics game is the winner!
