Online Games

Below is just a sample of our phonics games designed for classroom use.

The words in these games are plain text (not colour coded) by design. Colour-coding clearly shows the link between spelling and sound.  Reading plain non-colour coded text allows children to connect what they have learnt about spelling and sound and everyday print. In Monster Phonics provide colour coded and plain text resources. The games here provide plain text practice.

Word Fish

free phonics games online reading games Free children's gamesSelect a year group, then choose a monster to go fishing with Cool Blue. Finally select a grapheme and click start.

Use the mouse clicks to drop and raise the fishing line. Click once to drop the line into the ocean, wait for a fish to take the bait, click again to reel in the catch. The aim of the game is to catch as many real word fish as possible. Catching fish with real words wins points, but catching fish with nonsense points looses points. See if you can catch all the real words listed at the bottom of the page before the game ends.
