Phinder is a free website designed to help educators generate lists of words with a target grapheme-phoneme correspondence or orthographic pattern. Select one or more grapheme-phoneme correspondences, and Phinder will generate a list of words with those patterns organized by frequency. These words can be used for word reading and spelling instruction and practice.
