Tricky Words 2.  Just to let you know the package arrived last Monday. I played the Match it game, spelling version, with my 14 year old student today and it went really well – age appropriate and fun.

I use your Trugs resources in so many of my lessons - the children never tire of them & I always have a pack to hand for every lesson.
A test to help with analysis to complement the other Trugs resources would be fantastic!
Thank you !

Sophie Saulter

Please can I take this opportunity to thank you for your excellent games. I have been using them with some of my pupils and they really love them!
With thanks


Hi Joanne,

I would love a copy!  My boys and students love Trugs. 

Best wishes


Our department recently took part in the first trugs online training session, led by Joanna. From the fore, Joanna's expertise and experience was clear and her engaging personality allowed us to understand not just what trugs is about - but - the way in which we should work with our students. Joanna took us through the product clearly and we had great fun playing the main card games. We finished the session excited about the potential impact of trugs, and know that Joanna will be there to support us with further questions as we embark on using this product. We look forward to our next scheduled training session with anticipation.

Best wishes,

I just wanted to say a huge thanks for TRUGS as both a teacher and parent. My whole Year 5 class are always desperate to go out to play (even those who don't need to!) and we have even had whole class TRUG sessions for vocab development using box 3. 

Playing Box 2 at home has changed reading time for my 7 year old boy who struggles to track and maintain sense when reading. Family TRUG offs at the dinner table have improved his confidence no end. 

It's a really fantastic resource.

I wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU for sending us all the Trugs games! We are working our way through them (we've watched your YouTube tutorials!) and absolutely love them. The kids play them for ages and happily read the words without even realising they are reading. 

Luke is pretty good at reading but often won't focus, so it is particularly good for him as it is just one word at a time. Beth is a champion little reader and will happily pick up her reading book and read to me, but these are so good for getting more words into her vocab and trying out new sounds. The kids have learnt the words "gram" and "prop" which they didn't know before. 

Beth has sent her teacher a video message telling her about the game and her lovely teacher has said she must get it for school when it reopens.

From a MumNW London

A colleague introduced me to TRUGS a few years ago when I was teaching at a mainstream school, and I saw how it motivated pupils and aided their progression in reading and spelling.

 So I introduced it to our special school when I moved here, and it has proved so popular.  We like that it we can track their progress and groups of pupils can play independently - so important for our youngsters.

It forms part of our literacy intervention, but also pupils choose to play it just for fun!

Thank you once again for thinking of us in schools in these extraordinary times - and thank you for creating this marvellous game!

Hello, was a brilliant training course again today, have just played trugs again with my 2 1/2 year old daughter , the colours shapes and words for stage 1 are working well with her, after the last training I bought the pack as a long term project for my daughter to play with my cousins aged 12 and 9 but she has already enjoyed playing with them. She really enjoys the. Games and learning many thanks
