Phonics: Hangman

Some of you may know this game already!

This game will help you sound out any guessed letters to find out what the word is.

Remember to keep the words quite short and they are familiar with like ‘cat’, ‘dog’ or “rock” and “sock” but learning the rule for “-ck”.


Draw out the number of lines on a whiteboard or sheet of paper which shows the number of sounds that word has. You need to say aloud a sound, if it is in the word, the adult can write it in the correct line space. If the sound is not in that word, you create a hangman, starting with his body. Good luck!
