Phonics Fun with Biff, Chip & Kipper (Part 1)

Phonics Fun with Biff, Chip & Kipper. We took the game into a family who were using the related reading books at school.

These books use a system of learning to read called phonics. This is quite common in the UK, although less so in the US. The game uses the same characters and teaching technique to help children get more enthused about reading.

We tested the game with Ben and Ida. Ida (5) was already a keen reader but found that being able to hear back what she was reading was a nice feature. This not only helped her make the right phonics word sounds but also added some entertainment and novelty.

Ida also enjoyed the other phonics based games that are on offer. Check back next week to see how she gets on with Part 2 of the game.

Phonics Fun with Biff, Chip & Kipper is available to download via the eShop.

Official blurb:

Vol. 1 (Levels 1, 1+ and 2)
At Level 1 children focus on the sounds they hear around them in daily life – at school, at home, in the park or in town.
Levels 1+ and 2 move onto practising the actual sounds (phonemes) and also start to introduce some alternative spellings of certain sounds.

Vol. 2 (Levels 3 and 4)
In Level 3 children continue practising new sounds and are introduced to more alternative spellings of certain sounds.
Level 4 revises all the sounds already introduced, before moving onto further alternative spellings as well as different pronunciations.

Vol. 3 (Levels 5, 5M and 6)
By Levels 5 and 5M children put together their knowledge of all the alternative spellings and pronunciations they have learnt so far. The exercises help children reinforce the link between sounds and the different ways they can be written.
At Level 6 the emphasis is on increasing your child’s confidence and fluency through reading a range of Non-Fiction books.
