Reintroduce the sounds c, k, ck. Sing the Jolly phonics songs and relearn the actions

Using the picture cards below talking like a robot say the word to your child e.g. m-a-n, and then they would pick the correct picture to match. Once a few of these have been done pick a picture and ask your child what sounds they can hear in the word e.g. you would say van and your child would say v-a-n. Have a go at a few of these.
