Phonics Survival Game (With a video game theme)
First, go through the alphabet with the class. Rehearse the sounds that each letter makes. A (ah), B (buh), C (Kuh)...etc.
Have the students repeat after you to practice.
Then explain the rules of the game: You (the ALT) will display two or more letters on the screen. You will then make a sound that matches on of the letters. All the students will be standing up. The students will have to try and match the sound to the letter by raising their left hand or right hand. Once all the students have chosen an answer, CLICK the correct letter to reveal the CROWN. If the students chose correctly, they are safe. If they chose wrong, and they must sit down. The last students standing at the end of the LEVEL win.
There are 4 LEVELS to this game. It gets a little bit more challenging with each level. You can have the class reset at the end of each level, so no student has to sit out the whole game.
Remember to click the letter squares to make them disappear. The correct letter will have a CROWN behind it.
Here is the Answer Key:
Level 1 - O, G, Q, Z, P, T, F, U
Level 2 - J, M, V, R, O, I, K, R, S, K, M, D
Level 3 - B, X, U, D, I, L, E, F, O, B, H
Final Level - Lock, Ban, Nice, House, Zoo, Have, Job, Loom, Hello, Coat, Bog, Doll, Boat, Slice, Jet
My classes had a lot of fun with this one! I hope you guys do too!

This seems really fun. Thank you!
Oh this is neat! I will do this with my Junior high school students in the future!
This looks fun! Nice animations. I'm going to use this this week. Thank you!
I'm going to give this one a go next week, thanks!
Lots of fun! A couple suggestions I would make is maybe have both answers show a crown upon clicking them, so the teacher can choose which is the answer on the fly and not need an answer key prepared in advance. And then don't remove the answer after clicking it, that way we can sound out the letters to the students while the letters are still visible and show them the difference. Great work though, really well put together.
This sounds fun, I'll try it sometime. thanks
This is nice
I love using this game in between units or as a filler, I give stickers as prizes after every round and have them stand up for each new round. They love this game. I tend to pick my own answers though, and point to the correct option. Great game!
Quick note, I get quite a few students watching which arm other students raise, so after each letter I say I give a quick count "3, 2, 1, go!" so they all raise their hands at the same time. Great phonics activity thanks!
