Peace at Last

Listen to the story Peace at last. Draw a picture of your favourite character. 



Use the story Peace at last to talk about the importance of sleep. Why it is important to have a good sleep routine and why we need to sleep.

Revisit Review:  Recap sounds s a t p i n m d o g c k ck u r b f l h e ff ll ss

Teach phoneme/grapheme:  No new sounds today

Practise Oral Blending: Using a puppet or toy pretend they are talking like a robot.  Ask the puppet what it would like for tea – whisper in ear and sound out – ch-ee-se, h-a-m, f-i-sh, cake (c-ai-k), s-ou-p (s-oo-p), p-ie. Only use 1 syllable words.  You could also ask the toy what it likes to do eg h-o-p, j-u-m-p, s-i-ng, r-u-n, r-ea-d, p-l-ay etc.
