Once you get Electronic Phonics from ABC School Supplies, you won’t want to live without it. This innovative resource encourages pupils to work on developing their phonics knowledge independently, whilst engaging them in fun phonics games and practice.
Pupils can load up Electronic Phonics with the digraph, trigraph and letter tiles and press the button for them to be read out. A bank of 823 words can be fully blended by Electronic Phonics. In segment mode, a word is read out and pupils then use the tiles to spell out the word. All the approaches available using Electronic Phonics help pupils to sound and blend unfamiliar printed words and increases their speed to do so.
Games built into Electronic Phonics will excite pupils about phonics by adding a competitive edge. Pupils are given points for correctly spelt words and differentiation is easy by setting Electronic Phonics to an appropriate difficulty level. Pupils can even record their own blended version with up to 10 seconds of audio to see if their pronunciation matches the word in the Electronic Phonics bank.
• Use Electronic Phonics to encourage independence and hone skills in phonics.
• Excite those pupils who are less enthused with reading and phonics through the use of differentiation and games on Electronic Phonics.
• Provide your pupils with a tactile and multi-sensory approach to phonics, getting them to blend using the tiles provided.
• Improve your pupils’ spelling ability using the tiles and recorded bank of 823 words.

Reasons to Love:
• Great for independent learning – the children experiment with the graphemes and hear how they are blended
• The levels of difficulty can be altered for individuals so the child is practising words which match their level of learning
• An element of competition allows the children (and teacher) to see how well they are doing when they score points
• The children can record their own blended version and see if that matches the recorded word (helpful for self-correcting, so they can see where the error has been made)
• Will support decoding for the phonics screen, while allowing the children to practise reading skills with a huge bank of real words
• Could be used for targeted intervention to develop word reading skills
