Phonics Sounds of the Day!

Mrs Clay's Group


Revisit Review:  Give your child the graphemes for the sounds s a t p i .  Ask your child to lay them out in front of them and ask them to find the correct sound as you say it.  Keep a note of any sounds your child struggles with to practise. 

Teach phoneme/grapheme: 

Practise a few each day: Write some examples of words that rhyme.  Emphasise the last sound that rhymes by underlining the rhyming chunk in each word. Can your child say any others that could rhyme – words that are not real are ok!  mat sat fat
