Get ready for phonics! The Speedy 3 card game is a fun way to master letter-sound knowledge, a crucial first step when learning to read. Featuring an evidence-based embedded picture mnemonic, this game is perfect for young children starting their reading journey and children with literacy challenges, including dyslexia.
Speedy 3 works to build your child's recognition and instant recall of the sounds that link with single letters and common digraphs - sh, ch, th, wh, qu and ng. Featuring the Easy Alphabet, the set includes both letter and picture cues.
Flip a 3 and blitz your opponent by naming their next three sounds. Unless they flip a 3, and then it’s time to switch!
Extend Speedy 3 game to include letter writing for extra multisensory learning. Letter and picture cards can also be used for Memory and Go Fish for extra practice.
