In phonics this week we are focusing on Oral Blending and segmenting. Please have a go at the following activity with your child.
more words to segment and blend
Once children have got the hang of orally blending. Try it the other way around ask them to be the teacher. Show them one of the pictures cards e.g dog, can they segment that word d-o-g. If they find this challenging break it down further by focusing on what sound they can hear first ( in the initial place) d. then work on the middle and final sound. They will be finding this difficult so spend plenty of time modelling this and repeating the process.
