Literacy: Phonics/ Spellings

Write each sound on a post-it or square of paper.  Encourage your child to make the spellings by re-arranging the post-its or squares.  They may make a spelling while looking at a word such as 'bin' to find the matching sounds or just by listening to the sounds.  When a word is complete ask your child to point to each letter and say each sound in order, stretch the sounds slowly then say the word fast.  They do this in school every day! Play 'Picture Match' game on see-saw and post response to teacher.  Complete the phonics challenge activity 'Draw a picture.' Trace the words 'The tin is in a bin.'  Encourage your child to form the letters correctly.
