Teaching Reading Using Games at home provides students with a structured decoding and phonics experience which reinforces and consolidates letter-sound correspondences.
Each of the Trugs stages builds on the one before. All the learner has to do is play the card games, which are quick, fun and easy to play. Through ‘ Get it’,’ Match it’, and ‘Take it’, progress with reading is inevitable; the learner picks up the phonics patters easily and reinforces them every time they play the game . Games ‘Match it’ and ‘Take it’ can also be used as spelling games.
Trugs allows parents and teachers to support the teaching methods of systematic synthetic phonics is a hugely engaging way.
