Awesome Word Game to Practise Word Phonetics

A child growing-up in the 1980s it was the decade of the power brands. Coca-Cola was in every hit kids movie, on every billboard and adverts on the TV. It was a name all kids remembered, simple catchy and easy to say. Other big brands followed Coco-Cola, using names that flowed. Such as Krispy Kreme, Dunkin Doughnuts, PayPal and most recently TikTok.

These are brand names we never forget and big marketing companies plan it this way. They use something called Alliteration. Kids love alliterations, because they are easy to remember and often rhyme. I turned using alliterations into the game below, to help kids learn and match word sounds.

Awesome Alliteration Card

The Mooki Cards contain a “Awesome Alliteration” card. To help dyslexic children practice word sounds and learn reading skills. Use the card below on your phone or tablet for free!

This card is based on scientific research, on "Persistence of Dyslexic's Phonological Awareness Deficits".

Words That Start With Same Letter

  • Alliterations is when words share the same starting sound. Such as "Red Robin", "Sizzling Sausages" and "Tasty Tacos".
  • Children's authors, song writers and poets use alliterations in their writings. This makes it easier to remember their stories, songs and poems. By giving a rhythm to the writing.
  • A child first begins to learn how to read, by sounding out the letters and sounds in a word. Practising alliterations helps the child understand word sounds.
  • Awesome Alliterations is step 3 on the "The Foundations of Reading: Back To Basics For Children With Dyslexia". Practising all the steps on the reading staircase. Helps the child build strong foundations in reading and they will do better at school.
