A collection of five games by Bob Hext, originally developed with the dyslexic children he was teaching. The three card games started life with dyslexic  teenagers in y9 and Y10, and "Deebees" is based on a very simplified form of backgammon, so their presentation is suitable for any age. The content is basic, all falling within the national curriculum for Y1.  The card games also feature in the "Playing with Words" kits.


  • Initial Blends.  A brilliant combination of cards and letter-dice for building words beginning with consonant blends. Dyslexic children who struggle with phonics often find that this way of splitting words into beginning and ending "chunks" (it's called "onset and rime") is helpful. The spellings are simple, but this was a favourite with Bob's Y9 and Y10 students, and the first resource to ever put letters on dice.
  • Strike. Another of Bob's card games. Like "Uno," this is based on the game "Black Jack." It consists entirely of 3-letter words that only have consonants that can be reversed - like b/d, p/g etc. Great fun for any age
  • Wordbuilder The "You Lose" card turns this beginnings and endings word chunk game into a real winner! Bob's students loved it, and many more have since. All the end chunks (the "rimes") are whole words, which children with dyslexia often recognised visually.
  • Deebees and Queen peas Two games that just focus on letters that are often reversed: one for b/d; one for p/q. Very visual, and lots of fun.
