The game is intended to be played using a magic wand with children tapping individual syllable pictures and magically blending them together, e.g. ti-ger = tiger, croc-o-dile=crocodile. Perfect for a literacy centre.
“In terms of literacy, one of the key stages of phonological awareness, is the ability to discriminate syllables – the ‘beats’ within a word. Appreciation of rhythm also leads children to recognise rhyming patterns which is critical for the learning of phonics.”
