Phonic Flashcards are better than regular flashcards because the phonemes (letters and digraphs) are sounded out! The word "fish" becomes "fff" "i" "shhh", with all words and phonemes recorded by a professional voice artist, helping to build a solid phonics foundation for reading (and spelling) success!
We have been making educational software for twenty years. All of our apps are designed to maximize learning outcomes, while also being super easy to use and fun.

Each interactive card features a picture, which you can tap to hear the animal sound.

Tap the letters and digraphs to hear each phoneme. Blend them together to sound-out the word.
Hide the picture to administer a reading test.
As well as FLASHCARDS, there are three additional activities:
SHADOWS - a multisensory word-building game which is visual and tactile, while also reinforcing phonemes.
MATCH UP! - simply involves matching words with pictures. Turn off the sound cues to test word recognition.
COMPOUND WORDS - a game-show style quiz to identify the animals.
When sounding out "phonic chunks" and recognizing how words are constructed becomes second nature to a child, they are equipped with the tools to ensure success in literacy.
