If you enjoyed the award winning Hairy Letters you'll love Hairy Phonics.
After learning the alphabet the next step is the introduction of consonant digraphs -
where two consonants join together and make one sound.

- Learn 9 phonemes (sounds): sh, ch, th, ck, ff, ll, ss, zz, ng.
- Guides your child through a structured sequence of learning.
- Phonic animations link an action with the sound.
- Trace the letters with your finger.
- Play games to blend the phonemes into a whole word.
- Save all the Hairies and see them dance.

Hairy Phonics develops phonemic awareness.
This is a particularly important skill for those with dyslexia.

This app was a rip off, the app was 3.99 and for the amount of content I am extremely dissapointed. Absolutely not worth the money. What a shame!

Great for learning phonics

My kids loved the first Hairy app and were excited to play this one. It didn't disappoint as they really enjoyed it. It has a different game to the first one where you build a word for the Hairy guy to slide over. It was over quite quickly but held their attention and they learned more sounds and words.
