I teach in the UK where our school uses a government program 'Letters and Sounds.' It builds phonic knowledge from 3-4 yrs olds up to 8+. I really love it's emphasis on oral blending and segmenting (for it's practical links to reading and writing). It also has fun games and activities that my class loves and asks for! Here's their favourite Silly Soup.
We're making lots of silly soup,
We're making soup that's silly
We're going to cook it in the fridge to make it nice and chilly.
You can then add rhymes such as cat, hat.. for the children to add to or for segment a word for children to put back together, d-o-g and the children scream DOG!
It's all free and downloadable from
and lots of websites have already made the games for you, try www.sparklebox.co.uk for some fabulous resources generally.
I hope this helps someone looking for a program or even just some tips and fun ideas!
