Zapp 2 Learn phonics tiles are a fantastic phonics intervention resource. The app teaches the phonic using sentences and images to engage the pupil, then the phonics tiles are used to confirm the pupil has understood. This is done by scanning the QR code on each tile. The tiles can be spread around a classroom or used outside in the playground. Creating this unique environment really engages pupils and the magic of scanning a tile correctly is proving to be a very successful intervention. Tiles are grouped together as either phase 2 and 3 or phase 5 and alien words. Setting up the phonics tiles is a very easy process. It can be even provided as a ready to go resource pre-installed on a LearnPad tablet. In this case, the phonics tiles are an out of the box solution to a phonics intervention. Pupils with ADHD or with a low attention spans are really increasing their phonics skills.
