Online Phonics Games for Kids

Phonics is taught to preschoolers and kindergarteners at a young age to help them decode sounds from letters. This helps them subsequently to start reading and recognizing unfamiliar words. Somewhere between pre-K and grade 2 are the ages where children pick up phonics. These four years are crucial to draw attention to words and letters and help children pick up the sounds based on which they are formed.

Online phonics games for the classroom help children to learn and practice phonics with ease. Games like letter sequence games, letter sounds games, reading words games, rhyming words games, letter names games, vowel teams games, trigraphs games, diphthongs games, three letter blends games and more can help your little one master the concept of phonics.

Other ELA games you can explore are: reading games, writing games, sight words games, letter tracing games, etc.

How do we introduce phonics to kids?

Phonics helps children to master the art of identifying alphabets, string alphabets together to form words, and understand sounds in order to make verbal speech. They basically help students to spell, read, and write.

Phonics can be introduced to kids with interactive phonics games online. These games allow children to identify and sequence letters, identify letter sounds, and practice reading and rhyming words. Children also get to work with trigraphs, initial and ending consonant blends, bossy R, soft sounds, three letter blends and much more. They learn how to form words and sentences and learn the meaning as well as the pronunciation of words. These games can be utilized to introduce the concept of phonics to kids to help them develop a long-lasting relationship with language.

How can we make phonics fun for kids?

Interactive phonics games online do a great job of combining learning with fun. Parents and teachers often look for exciting and engaging ways to enable kids to learn phonemes to improve their reading and spelling fluency. Since the English language contains 44 phonemes derived out of 26 letters, many letters have different sounds.

The idea behind ‘learn phonics games’ is to bridge the gap between academic struggle and fun learning. These games are interactive, engaging, and digitally vibrant. They help children easily segment sounds to identify words.

How can games help in better understanding of phonics?

Recognizing sounds and words are essential for children as most of the things they read, even as they grow older, are unfamiliar. Phonics go a long way into building a foundational construct towards a child’s reading, writing, and speaking abilities.

While flashcards and books are excellent to help children learn words, incorporating a unique set of educational games can be very successful to help kids understand phonics in an engaging and interactive way.

FAQs1. How do you practice phonics for kids?

Phonics can be practiced through online games that start right at the basics. They can teach kids how to read, write and identify letters, and help them spell words. Games where children can learn how to identify letters through sound, practice alphabets, spell small and bigger words, and practice word matching based on phonic sounds are wonderful tools to practice phonics.

2. How to teach phonics?

Phonics can be taught easily through online games! These games enable children to develop a good sense of aural comprehension. They encourage children to pay attention to the various sounds and then model them. They also help children to listen to and speak phonic sounds to embed them into their learning.

3. How can I help my child understand phonics?

Online games can be incorporated into your child’s learning routine to understand phonics better. These games help in developing listening skills, sequencing skills, writing skills, speaking skills, and more. Games based on phonics also help children to make words based on sounds and alphabets. These games successfully weave writing exercises with phonics to ensure wholesome practice of the concept.

4. How can kids play games on phonics?

Phonics can be a tricky concept. For example, alphabets like ‘c’ sound like it is spelled as ‘see’, while others don’t. These can be difficult for young children to pick up if they don’t have access to the right resources. Not being able to pick up phonics correctly could hamper their growth and development in terms of reading and writing skills. Playing games on phonics can help your child pick up phonic skills and learn the sounds of the English language.

5. What are the best fun phonics activities for kids?

Phonics activities for kids might include matching letter sounds, using playdough to practice letters, singing alphabet songs, using a newspaper to have a scavenger hunt, etc.

Children need a lot of exposure to sounds and words to become comfortable with them and games on letter sounds help kids achieve that exposure smoothly. They help kids to learn the sound of the alphabet and also be able to associate it with different words that contain the sound.

FAQs1. How do you practice letter sounds for kids?

5. What are the best fun letter sound activities for kids?

Some letter sound activities for kids are:
Reading recall: Pick any one sound for the day. Start with common vowel sounds like ‘s’, ‘r’, or ‘t’. Say the sound out loud, and get your child to say it too. Read out sentences where the letter is recurring. Ask your child to clap, growl, or jump each time they hear the sound. This is a great attention-building and recognition activity.
No more sound: This is a fun activity that can be practiced when your child has learned a few sounds. Draw a series of pictures on a board and give your child a duster. Now call out a sound, and ask your child to erase all the words that begin with the sound. This may take some practice, but it’s a great way to build a connection between letter sounds and words.

#### Introduction

How does the process of game localization work in the mind of the average Internet user? A person takes a piece of paper, sits down in front of a microphone and reads the text in the most monotonous voice (wrapped in a blanket - an advanced layman will add). Then the recorded lines magically appear in the game - and that's it, the product is ready to use!

Jokes are jokes, but this topic is practically not disclosed. Various interviews with translators and dubbing actors sometimes pop up on the network, which highlight various nuances of the process of adapting projects into Russian, but these are just elements - you can’t make up a general picture from them. And what about those who decided to master this difficult but entertaining craft from scratch? Let's figure it out.

I'll start with a brief explanation. All of the following is based solely on my own experience gained while working on the translation and voice acting of Risen 3, Darkest Dungeon, Codex of Victory, Bastion and Transistor as part of the GameSVoiCE studio. This is an unofficial and non-commercial activity, and I don’t know how the principles of work described in this material coincide with what happens in the “kitchen” of professional localization studios.

But if you want to translate and voice your favorite game, which for some reason was ignored by others, or just understand what obstacles may arise in the process of work, this text is your guide, guide and instruction. I do not promise that what I have written will be interesting to read, but you will definitely take out a lot of new things from here.

Remember that not all games require voice acting. Bastion and Transistor were chosen largely for their memorable stories and dynamic storytelling.

recommendations

So, to begin with, I urge you to realize that localization is a slow, costly and very thankless process. Even a relatively small project can devour several months of your life and a four-figure sum of money from you, and in the end they will pour a bucket of slop on you just because in one of the scenes the hero uttered a remark in an arrogant, not contemptuous tone, or because ashen one you translated as "ash". Therefore, first of all, with a clear mind, answer the main question: do you need it at all?

Next, you should decide what to take. If your goal is to localize a series of games, start with the smallest and shortest of the list so that you can understand how well you are doing the task with an example of insignificant volumes. I don’t recommend taking on games with an episodic release model (like Telltale’s) - although they are easier to work with due to a more understandable structure, you risk letting a lot of people down if after the first chapter you realize that you don’t drag it and decide to jump off.

#### Stage I: Resource Parsing and Technical Testing

Start of work is preceded by removal of all text and sound files from the game. It's extremely rare that this goodness lies directly in a folder, in an unprotected form, so you will need the help of a person who has experience working with file libraries. How and with what to open this or that container, you can also look on the net, but in this matter, knowledge is more important than the ability to blindly follow instructions: even if you open the necessary archives, it’s not a fact that you can then properly pack everything back after editing.

When working in a team, this stage is usually not a problem. GameSVoiCE has a full-time programmer who sorts and collects resources at the request of project curators. The only obstacle in this process is time, because encryption algorithms differ depending on the engine and format, and they can sometimes confuse even an experienced specialist.

Programs for unpacking resources can also be found in the public domain. For example, the insides of almost all Blizzard games can be explored using CascView.

If you are on your own, you should look for like-minded people. Test the waters on sites and communities dedicated to the game of your choice, leave a request on specialized translation sites like Zone of Games, enlist the support of a voice acting studio. It is very difficult to pull the whole process alone - too much burden on the shoulders of one person. And this is time and energy.

Also be prepared for the fact that your project will be technically impossible to implement. The game "Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor" is an excellent candidate for voice acting, but so far no one has been able to open it in order to at least calculate the volumes. Sometimes utilities that allow you to extract the contents of text and sound archives appear only after years, and nothing can be done about it.

Some GameSVoiCE projects were frozen before the announcement. For example, they simply could not find an actor for the role of the colorful Lo Wang from Shadow Warrior.

Let's assume that the first stage has been successfully overcome and you have a folder with source materials in your hands. Now you have to evaluate the scope of work and compare them with your own capabilities. Often all audio files are lumped together, and you first need to separate the background sounds and music from the actual characters' lines. And even if there is a clear structure in the folders, it is better to manually listen to each file, because sometimes there are lines among the sounds that should also be re-voiced.

Technical testing is an optional but desirable feature. It is better to make sure that your text and voice embedding tools are working in advance, and when making changes to the game archives, there are no problems with the launch and performance of the application. At the same time, it is worth checking how the engine reacts to specific characters: “ё”, em dash, quotation marks.

#### Stage II: Organizing files and studying the lore

What the programmer sent you cannot yet be given to the actors with the explanation “here are the materials, then figure it out yourself.” It is important to take care of convenience: both your own and those who have yet to work with your files. Captions for subtitles are usually stored separately from menu texts and descriptions, and they should be transferred from the "native" format to the production environment. Best option: Excel spreadsheets.

What is it for? To have quick access to all voiced cues in the game. This makes it easier to search by words if the goal is to get rid of objectionable vocabulary or outdated terminology. This allows you to count the number of lines, make notes and sort the blocks in the desired sequence. Such a table is your "operational headquarters", the heart of localization. It will serve you for days, so don't be afraid to overdo it with information and don't neglect its design.

General table of replicas from Transistor at the initial stage of data systematization.

First of all, you need to synchronize the audio files themselves with their subtitles: understand where the text is stored and where the sound is stored. There is no universal tip to speed up this process, because a lot depends on how the files are initially structured. In Bastion and Transistor, everything is clear: in the Subtitles folder, the texts are broken down into levels, in Audio - the replicas themselves. Using Total Commander, we massively copy the names of sound files from the first folder into Excel, then paste texts in English and Russian opposite them. We listen to the sounds, compare them with the subtitles. We repeat the procedure with the remaining folders.

My colleagues working with Dark Souls III were less fortunate. In this game, the audio is divided into archives, each contains several characters at once. These files had no tags, so sorting out the lines by roles was almost a matter of touch, or rather, by ear, comparing them with texts on foreign fan sites. In Risen 3, the big trouble was with contextual battle cries (SVM), when in a similar vein for each NPC, the necessary one and a half hundred phrases were singled out from an array of 10 thousand lines.

But this is how she acquired after studying the context of the encountered replicas. This is already something close to what is commonly called a “lock kit”.

If the game assumes one key role (the main character or an outside observer comments on events), it makes sense to group blocks of speech in chronological order, within levels or missions, and also make notes regarding the development of the plot. This information is unlikely to be useful to you, but it will help the actor not to lose the thread of the story and better understand the story.

In projects with a bunch of medium and small roles, it is desirable to line up lines so that the structure of the dialogues is not disturbed, and then create several tables for each of the characters separately, especially for the actors. It is better not to delete the lines of other characters from such texts, but simply darken them so that it is easier to understand what mannerisms and intonations in a given situation should be played out.

Codex of Victory was developed in collaboration with developers. This made it possible to prepare visual calculations with illustrations and the preservation of the dialogue structure.

Finally, you yourself must have exceptional knowledge of the game's universe. Even before the start of all the work, go through the story several times in order to determine the context of most sentences on the go. If the texts are oversaturated with short remarks like “Right back at you”, immediately make notes under what circumstances they are pronounced, because such expressions can be translated in different ways, and not every option will suit the situation.

With a meticulous approach, it is better to mark all found lines in general, which is easiest to do by looking at other people's walkthroughs on YouTube. This will help to find out the percentage of unused phrases (there are almost a quarter of them in Supergiant Games projects!) and trace the logic in the initial sorting of lines. For example, in Bastion, there are fresh fixes at the end of subtitle blocks, so if one sound container contains two similar phrases, the bottom one will always be relevant.

#### Stage III: Translation and text layout

Tired of it yet? Well, at least read this... The first two stages are just preparation, the real work starts from here. Do not rush to rejoice at the fact that the game has official Russian subtitles - if the publisher did not have enough money for voice acting, then the translation was probably not entrusted to the best specialists, so we most often get insipid texts without obvious errors, but with a weak level of artistic presentation.

Working with fan translations is even more difficult. Firstly, it is desirable to get the authors' approval to change the texts, and if the crack is old, then it is not easy to find its creators. Secondly, in such adaptations, only the approximate meaning of the sentences is usually preserved: turns of speech, puns, references and allegories are omitted. The quality also suffers from the fact that on sites like Notabenoid, the project is available to dozens of people with different levels of experience and knowledge, and the editor has no balls to throw out the hacks.

Translation of a work of art is as exciting as it is difficult. This video is about such pitfalls.

Many underestimate the importance of creativity, getting confused in the very concepts of "translation" and "localization". In any case, the Russian version will sound and be perceived differently from the original, so do not try to sit on two chairs, torn between verbatim retelling and the artistic style of presentation. Sometimes it's better to completely restructure a phrase so it doesn't sound clumsy.

The curator of the project does not need to be fluent in foreign languages. Your first priority is control. Make a glossary and bring all the terms to a single meaning, mark controversial phrases that are out of context. It is useful to have a couple of translators on hand who can be trusted with the adaptation of the most intricate expressions, but it is up to you to make changes to that very “main table” so that not a single small detail goes unnoticed and unaccounted for.

The hardest part of working on Bastion was adapting the alphabet. Here you can see how the workflow was arranged.

But even the presence of an initially perfect translation does not relieve you of a headache, because the texts have yet to be laid, adjusting the length of the localized strings to fit the original. This is necessary in order to avoid the "Witcher Syndrome", where the characters' lines were speeded up or slowed down due to a rigid binding to their pronunciation time. Moreover, this is relevant not only in those projects where it is important to get into facial animation: if in Bastion one off-screen remark "fits" into another (provided that both are not connected and are responsible for different actions), then the second one simply will not be pronounced.

The importance of laying is determined at the stage of technical testing. In Fallout 4, it is useless - there the engine automatically adjusts to the length of the lines (this allowed one team of enthusiasts to "voice" the game with a speech synthesizer), but in Risen 3, a deviation from the original timing leads to a crash. This process is also important from the point of view of the script: if in the original the character was limited to a couple of words, it is impossible that in the Russian version he mumbled, chewing his answer.

The notorious "timing" is important not only in voice acting. If the text is not abbreviated, in some plates it will either crawl out of the frame, or part of it will be hidden.

Lack of characters is usually not as critical as brute force, but it is also less common, so get ready to cold-bloodedly cut texts, saving them from unnecessary pronouns and adverbs, and sometimes even adjectives. In a hopeless situation, build on the meaning inherent in the sentence, rearranging the thought so as to express the same thing, but shorter. A large vocabulary is another of your advantages.

Let's consolidate the material with a couple of examples from the game Bastion. "Want to know how to find an Anklegator lair?" and "You use a Kid as bait.", running in sequence. The literal translation of this chain is: “Do you want to know how to find the lair of a crotodile? Use Maltz as bait." The first line is fine, but the second one is noticeably longer.
