Why not combine physical exercise with keyword and phonics reading?! Create your own workout schedule and get fit learning your phonics and reading!
This challenge focuses on finding words in magazines, books, leaflets, newspapers, food packaging etc. that contain specific sounds. Choose 2 or 3 digraphs or trigraphs (2 or 3 letters that come together to make a sound) and see if you can find words containing these. I focused on 'ay, ee and air' but you may like to use your sounds of the week from your home learning or pick a tricky sound that you want to practice. It is great for reading too as you can challenge yourself to read the words you find!
Why not have a go at making your own flip flap phonics book to practice segmenting and blending? It is very easy to make and is a great resource to support early reading.
For something to stay in our memory long term, we need to make it more exciting. To physically play with a sound and include colour allows children to remember it both visually and physically. By making various sounds out of different materials and objects (pens, paint, chalk, flour, cereal, straws, stones, sticks, Lego, newspapers, magazines, Play- Doh), they are not only practicing physically forming and making each sound, but the repeated exposure commits the sound to their long term memory.
