Gamegoo Free Phonics Reading Games for Kids


I recently posted an article about tips for reading activities that you can do and reading resources that are available to you to improve your child's reading. I found another great website with educational phonics games.
Earobics is a K-3 multi sensory reading intervention product produced by Houghton Mifflin. Gamegoo is Earobic's free online educational game. For the list of educational standards addressed in each game (such as identifying letters in words) follow the home button to the teachers and parents link.

Games are categorized by beginner, intermediate and advanced. Here is a sample of some of the games on Gamegoo.

Squanky the toothtaker - find the words with opposite meanings. (Advanced)

Fearless Freida - spell the words that Freida yells out. (Advanced) My five year old really liked this game.

Wizards and Pigs - learn about different forms of poetry-rhyming, alliteration, and rhythm. (Advanced)

Alien Scavenger Hunt - catch the letters to create the word that you hear. (Intermediate)

Tina's World Real or Make-Believe? -decide whether the story is real or make believe. (Beginner)

There are thirteen games and you can request to be notified when new games are added. These games intersect education and recreation in a fun way that reinforces phonics concepts!
