Phonics App: Tic Tac Toe

Lakeshore Publishing has a great free app for phonics called Tic Tac Toe. The first player chooses Xs or Os, and then chooses a space. Here are a few of the question types:
  • What are the first two letters of the picture below? (blends underneath)
  • Which of these words has a different beginning sound than the other words? (onset)
  • Which word doesn't belong with the others? (long and short vowels)
  • How many syllables are in this workd?
With each correct answer, the player marks her X or O in the square; incorrect answers get no mark.  Now, the app does not read the questions, so I have to play this with my kindergartner to help with the unfamiliar words. I could see this as a great small group activity for K-2.
