Have a look at the letter wall. Which ones do you know already? Which ones are you unsure of?
Here is a link to listen to the different sounds we know or are learning in class https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCI2mu7URBc
We are going to be grapheme detectives! Have a look at the three words. Which graphemes do they have in? Can you spot any digraphs? Perhaps the ones from last week? Can you read the words?
Have a look at the picture clues for todays sound. What do you think it is? ea You might want to have a go at writing some of the words to match the pictures.
Can you read the real and alien words? Can you think of any other real words with the sound ea in them? Or can you have a go at making up your own alien word using ea?
Use the phoneme frame (either 3 boxes or 4 boxes depending on the number of sounds in that word).
Say the word 'play'
Build it - can you write it in the phoneme frame, 'p' in the first box, 'l' in the second box and 'ay' in the third box.
Blend it - point to each sound, say it and then blend the word together.
Read it - this time, just read the word without blending it.
Do the same for 'a-b-ou-t' (4 boxes), 'c-r-ie-d' (4 boxes), 'r-ea-d' (3 boxes)
Write these words on small pieces of paper or card and show the words to your child throughout the day and see if they can read them without needing to blend it. Keep a little bank of these words to show over the next few days. Hopefully they will then recognise these words when reading and this will help with their fluency.
