Second grade is an exciting time for students, because they are introduced to basic building blocks of reading and rhyming - phonics! Turtle Diary's large variety of second grade phonics games is designed to help students understand and identify long and short vowels within simple sentences as well through pictorials. Our phonics games for 2nd grade also incorporate an auditory pronunciation of long and short vowels to really help students distinguish between certain vowels and how they are used differently in specific words. Through our online phonics game, our hope is that second graders develop a strong foundation in phonics to be able to approach more difficult language arts concepts with confidence throughout their educational careers. Our games are designed to cultivate an interactive and positive learning experience for second graders to make learning fun and exciting, an impression of learning we hope they carry with them forever.
