Building words activity. The different sounds are on separate bricks. The children have to listen carefully to the different sounds in each word and find the right grapheme. They can then press the sound buttons on the top of the mega blocks and blend the sounds to read the words they have built. A great phonic activity for early years which can be extended for more complex sounds.
