This is a fast, easy word-building and word-changing game for two players who know at least one sound for each letter of the alphabet. Players must:
- blend sounds into words,
- manipulate sounds in words,
- use the two and three-letter consonant spellings sh, ch, th, wh, ck, ng, ll, ss, tch and dge,
- consider which sounds/spellings and combinations occur before vowels, and which occur after vowels.
Here’s a 90-second demonstration:
Unlike other Spelfabet resources, this is a printed game not a digital download, so we are currently only selling it within Australia. If you’re in Melbourne, you can buy it from this website and pick it up from our office at 3/430 Rae St North Fitzroy (please ring first on 03 8528 0138 to make sure someone will be on our reception when you arrive). Otherwise, postage and packing to anywhere in Australia costs $9.20, regardless of whether you buy one game or several.
In Melbourne, you can also get this game from Childplay toy shop in Clifton Hill and Mind Games in the CBD. If you’re interstate or overseas, the DSF online store and SPELD NSW sell it, as does Switch Learning in New Zealand, and soon it will be available from Seelect Educational Supplies in SA and Phonics Australia in Qld.
