Recognising if a word is real or nonsense is a really big part of reading development! But it’s so important that the words are decodable and target sounds and graphemes that the children are working on! Our Real or Nonsense Games are designed to steer this exploration in a fun and effective way, all while ensuring the words are decodable and relevant to the children’s learning stage.
The Real or Nonsense Games come with a splash of colour, but it’s not just for aesthetics. Each colour corresponds to a phonics level (CVC, CVCC, etc.), paving the way for easy differentiation. With six distinct levels, these games cater to a wide spectrum of abilities, making them a delightful addition to a diverse classroom.
Ensuring that the words in play are decodable and aligned with the target sounds and graphemes the children are working on is paramount. This focus on decodability ensures that while the kids are having fun distinguishing real words from nonsense ones, they are also solidifying their phonetic understanding and reading skills.
The voyage of reading development is an exciting yet complex endeavour. The Real or Nonsense Games are crafted to add a layer of fun and clarity to this voyage, aiding the young learners in mastering the crucial skill of word recognition. The colourful differentiation, the focus on decodability, and the level of engagement these games offer make them a cherished asset in our journey towards nurturing confident and curious readers!
