Week beginning Monday 1st June

Have a go at recapping all the Phase 2 sounds this week. 

In school we have a card for each sound and we go through them one at a time. If your child can't remember the sound then tell them and ask them to repeat it back to you. You could make a note of the ones they struggle with and add more of these into your pile so they get to practise them more often.  It's best not to have more than 5 unknown ones, as children can switch off if they think it's too hard, so take some cards out if this is the case. 

Once children have had a go at recapping the sounds, have a go at reading words with these sounds in. If there are some sounds your child is struggling with, make sure the words only have 1 unknown sound in each. Example of words: cat, dog, sun, pin, mat, sock, frog, bat, hat, mug, red, huff and puff, kiss, black, jump, kick, sip.

You could:

*Write a 3/4 letter word for children to read then have to draw a picture of that item.

*Play pairs with cards that have some Phase 2 words on. You could match 2 of the same word, or match a word and a picture. 

   

*Play I spy, focusing on words that start with a Phase 2 sound. 

*If your child would like to you could have a go at putting some of these words into sentences. Can you write a silly sentence using some of your keywords too?
