Product Description


All of my free online phonics games at ReadwithPhonics.com require an internet connection to play. Teach and practice the 44 phonics sounds. Play as a whole class using whiteboards or individually using tablets or desktop computers. Create a free school account to track your students progress as they play and quickly spot gaps in knowledge.


SOUND BUTTONING is a great game to help segmenting and blending words down into their individual sounds. Students can select which sound they want to practice. In this game students are required to break down each word into its sounds, as single letter sounds, digraphs, trigraphs or to find the silent 'e' or split digraphs. To play, drag and drop the dots and lines underneath the word depending on what type of sound it is.

A dot signifies a single letter sound.

A short line signifies a digraph

A longer line signifies a trigraph

A curved line shows where a silent 'e' or 'trigraph' is present.

If incorrect, an unsuccessful noise will play and students loose one of their 3 lives. If correct, a success noise will play and the sound will be played back to you, positively reinforcing the move. At the end of the game and to aid with the learning of all of the sounds in the word the whole word will be sounded out back to you. Helping to reinforce segmenting and blending skills.
