Graphophonics: Greek Vocabulary

Reading is a process of decoding and understanding the symbols and conventions of written language.
Before the children are taught reading at school, the children that have a good prognosis, in terms of fostering reading ability, have developed some of the pre-reading skills.

  • the direction of reading is from top to bottom and from left to right
  • realizing that what is read is the letters and not the images
  • understanding of concepts: page, word, syllable, letter, sentence, book


In summary, the development of reading skills depends largely on the following factors:

1. Phonological awareness
That is, the ability to analyze the spoken sentences into words, the words into syllables and the syllables into individual phonemes-sounds.

2. The ability of learning and recognizing the letters of the alphabet

3. Graphophonemic knowledge
That is, the knowledge of the relationships of the sound between the symbol-grapheme and sound-phoneme of a language.


Dyslexia: The prevailing view of many researchers argues that children with dyslexia have difficulty with phonological processing of sounds of words. The children with reading difficulties find it difficult to analyze and manipulate the sounds of language.
This means that children who have reading difficulties have phonological deficits and hence these deficits should be reduced. The reading ability can be improved if we exercise the pre-reading skills.
In other words, the mental representations between sounds-phonemes and symbols-graphemes must be strenghtened.

That was the main idea of creating Graphophonics: Vocabulary
Learning the visual and aural identification of sounds – phonemes with their written representations, the letters – graphemes, which produce the words in written language.



By touching an object-word, the letters of the touched object appear randomly on screen. The child, selects and drags the letter-grapheme, trying to find the correct position.If the letter is not in correct position, the letter returns to his initial position on screen.
By touching each letter, the child can hear the correspondent phoneme sound and if the letter goes to the correct position, the name of the letter is heard, either in English or Greek language. It depends on which is your selected language on your device.



1. Included 44 word-objects, selected from 5 Semantic groups: Fruits, Vegetables, Animals, Clothes, Vehicles.

2. Graphophonemic knowledge: The child recognizes letters and understands the sound-grapheme relationships of Greek and English alphabet letters. The child can hear the name of the letter as appears in alphabet and also can hear the correspondent phoneme, as a separate option.

3. Learning uppercase and lowercase letters: You can choose between uppercase and lowercase letters of the alphabet in both languages, English and Greek.

4. Separate options for each semantic group: Letters Hints, Phoneme sound, Letter name, Letter case.

5. Learning orthography: A reward sound is heard only if all the letters of the selected object are in the correct position. In this way, imprinted in memory only the correct form of the word.

6. Teach bilingual children both languages: English and Greek.
You can teach directly the differences and similarities between the alphabetical systems of both languages, such as pronunciation and writing. Simply, change the selected language of your device.
