I Spy phonic display. Reception children see the 'letter of the day' and look on the board to find something beginning with the letter. They write the word down on a piece of card using their phonic knowledge. They are then encouraged to draw a picture of the item, write their name and display it in the wall folder for all to see.
Phase 1 , Letters and Sounds. I filled pairs of eggs with different objects (bells, oats, rice, sand, pennies etc.) the children had to find 2 eggs that had the same sound. Quite tricky, and really encouraged careful listening.
A great book to support the teaching of Phase One Phonics and general Speech and Language. With repetition, rhythm and rhyme the children quickly pick up the theme of the book and you will soon hear them retelling it or acting it out with their friends. This book is particularly good for listening to and making the animal sounds… “I think I hear a lion, Raa Raa Raa’.
