Alphablocks

Playing with phonics...

This Alphablocks game contains songs, adventures and interactive puzzles that are great for developing your child's literacy skills.

Use the arrows to find episodes and click on the one you want to see. If you see an episode surrounded by stars, that means there is a game halfway through the story and your child will be able to help the Alphablocks continue with their adventure. They will be asked to pick up Alphablocks with their mouse and make words. When a word is made, it will come to life and the star word will be the one that fixes the problem and moves the story along.

Your child can go back into episodes to collect more stickers if they didn't get them all the first time.

The games let children play with making words for themselves. Experimenting with non-words and hearing what they sound like can also help children understand the basics of word-building.
