Scholastic’s interactive learning activities starring Clifford the Big Red Dog offer phonics fun to early readers.
With Make a Word (grades K–2), students create words by dragging missing vowels to them. Once they’ve created a word, a narrator sounds out the word, helping students practice identifying words with short-vowel sounds and sound-spellings.
While participating in Make a Word, students will:
- Develop phonemic awareness skills
- Distinguish easily confused letter pairs
- Recognize common short and long vowel sound-spellings
- Interact with the computer to create new text
