Children will join the adorable and friendly Spellyfish the jellyfish on an underwater adventure as Spellyfish uses phonics to teach your child how to spell consonant-vowel-consonant (CVC) words that contain the letter 'I' and the short /i/ sound.
Spellyfish Phonics - Short 'I' words is aligned with the US Common Core Standards for building foundational skills in reading for Kindergarten. It teaches critical skills such as : the isolation and pronunciation of the initial, medial vowel and final word sounds; phonological and phonemic awareness through the segmenting and blending of words; the recognition of rhyming words; the substitution of individual sounds to make new words; the letter to sound correspondence for the primary consonant sounds; the association of sounds with graphemes; how letters are sounded out from left to right; the recognition of upper and lower case letters; and the reinforcement of both letter sounds and letter names for each letter.
