Today I went to a community garage sale and found a few great deals. I bought this Leapfrog Phonics Learning System for $2.00 (because it was missing the "H"). It comes with 5 different levels of learning cards that you slide into the tray. There are different levels of game play too, like "Quiz", "Spell", "Read" & "Learn". The sound is VERY annoying, so we are going to use it without any sound at all.
There are extra pieces that store underneath the desk, which include the Silent E and Blends.
Here is one of the beginning cards (short vowels). I will be hiding/saving levels 1-5 for later use.
Slide the card in, pick out your letters and "read" the word. Since there is a picture, I think that's cheating a little, but you can see there are other "et" words on the side that can really be read.
I also bought this Disney Princesses "Spinning Wishes" game and all the books in the next picture for $3.00
