Match and Spell Next Steps is the perfect progression from Orchard Toys’ bestselling Match and Spell. Aimed at children aged 5 and over, Match and Spell Next Steps helps to develop more advanced reading and spelling skills using both sounds and blends. The game is played by building a variety of familiar and more advanced words, from ‘moth’ to ‘balloon’. Parents can use the sound and blend cards to encourage children to make the individual sounds as well as saying the entire word aloud. Once children become more confident, they can turn over the boards to use the blank side for a more challenging game. The game is finished once all the word boards have been completed. This educational literacy game is a great way to teach children about spelling and the sounds of words. Incredibly versatile, it can either be played as a single player activity or multi-player game.
