See if your child can independently decode the name of each item as they hunt and take a picture! Can you find all of the items?
All of the children's hard work in phonics has been leading up to sounding out and blending a set of 40 real and nonsense words - It's really useful for the children to practice reading lots of these words.
If you are able to print the attachments please encourage your child to sound button the words - this helps them to sound it out and segment the word together. The children are used to sound buttoning real and nonsense words with lines and dots (sausages and peas). Alternatively you/your child can write the words and then they can sound button them. When more than one letter makes one sound e.g. /ay/ in play children use a line (sausage), for a single letter making a single sound e.g. the /p/ in play use a dot (pea).
