As a tutor I am given the children who are struggling with reading.  There are several reasons children are poor readers, but the most common one is that computers teach some of the sounds incorrectly.  For example : they teach h as hu, and p as pu.  We to not say hu-a-pu-y for happy. 

Computer games are great for many things, but not for teaching phonics.  It is important that you the educator teach that so as to make sure they are getting the basics correctly

That's why you teach blending and stretching out the words.

That works for some kids even thouth they are taught the wrong enunciation.  But you would be surprised how many children have been given to me to help simply because of this error.  Getting the basice right is so very important for many children. It is the number one major cause of reading problems.
