How to use PHONICS 1 CVC app

There are three elements to PHONICS 1 CVC app

 WORDS     READ     and    WATCH   

If you are introducing your child to reading for the first time we recommend working your way through the app starting with WORDS   then   READ   then   WATCH…

WORDS

In the WORDS section of the app - there are 30 CVC words to build and read across 5 games.

 

 

Here is Georgie building and reading the word 'jet' in a very noisy classroom!

 

What are the red dots that appear under each letter of the word?

These are called sound buttons.

By pressing these buttons in the order that they appear (left to right) it helps the child segment the letter sounds in the word and blend them back together to read the word. This is a strategy used in school to decode and read words. 

 

Once your child has become proficient with sounding out and reading CVC (3 letter) words then you can move on to the READ section of  "phonics 1 CVC".
