This week I would like us to continue practising letter sounds and letter formation.
Please continue with m a s d t mad at dad sad mat sat
If you feel your child is confident on the first set of sounds and is able to blend the words confidently you can move on to i n p o g in on it an and pin
Remember to try and make this fun and try practising for short sessions a few times a day rather than long periods.
In school we support our sessions by playing matching games, letter hunts, matching letters to objects and thinking of as many words as we can with each letter. We also use a variety of writing materials to practise formation, e.g. chalk, paint, sand, water.
This is a nice activity you could also try at home. Place the letters face up with a variety of objects and ask your child to find the object which begins with the sound.
Today I would like you to find a dice and play a game.
Let your child count the spots independently.
Discuss the name of each dwarf . Why do you think they had this name?
Today I would like you to make dwarf number 8!
Draw your dwarf, think of a name and discuss why you have picked this name.
This is my dwarf. His name is Jolly because he is always laughing and smiling.
