This game is a great way for your child to identify digraphs and trigraphs commonly used in the classroom. It will show your child an image and ask them to pick the train car with the matching digraph or trigraph.
They can play in two modes:
Practice Mode - This mode is great for a child just beginning to learn about digraphs and trigraphs. They can practice identifying them and if they pick the wrong answer it will help them learn the correct one.
Play Mode - This mode challenges your child by earning points for each train they fill. Each level they complete gives them less time to fill the train. If they run out of time or make a mistake they have to start the level over.
