"SWAP and FIX card games, produced by GAMZ, provide excellent practice reading different phonic patterns. The small packs are easily transported, are good value for money and the pupils never seem to tire of them!

 

I believe that games can be powerful teaching tools for a number of different reasons: 

 

...children enjoy playing games and are most likely to learn effectively if they are interested and involved in what they are doing

 

...poorly motivated children are likely to work harder when presented with the challenge of a game than on other more formal activities.

 

... an excellent way of improving a child's self-esteem, providing a valuable opportunity for dyslexic children to experience success."
