Smiling, Caring and Learning Together on a Journey with God
Daily exercise idea:
If you can’t get out for your daily exercise today, here is a link to something you could try at home:
Today we are going to introduce a digraph. A digraph is two letters that make one sound.
Today’s sound is ‘ee’.
To help you learn how to say the sound correctly please take a look at the clip below from 2:21 minutes in:
We are going to learn the song and show you the action. Please get your grown-up to play this video link from 6:43 minutes into the clip for today’s sound:
Can you think of any words that have today’s sound in them? Go on a treasure hunt around your house to find objects containing the ‘ee’ sound. Say each word aloud. Can you hear where the sound is in the word e.g. beginning, middle or end?
Play the Picnic on Pluto phonics game online
Once your grown up has logged onto site and clicked into the game, ask them to choose Phase 3 and the select the ‘ee’ icon.
We’re going to play Disco Phonics (Grown-ups, this a variation of musical bumps)! Ask your grown-up to play your favourite pop-song/music. Let’s see you busting some moves on the dance floor! When the music stops, your grown up will hold up one of your pieces of ‘ee’ treasure and call out its name. Have a go at writing this word, recording all the sounds that you can hear. Make sure the ‘ee’ sound is spelt correctly! Repeat this for the duration of the song. Afterwards, can you read your words back to your grown up? How many words did you spell correctly? Keep this writing safe as you’ll need it for tomorrow!
This week we are thinking about counting on or back. We would like you to play the Helicopter Rescue game below:
Ask your grown-up to select the “Count on & back” tab at the top and then choose 1 to 10, 1 to 20 or a larger number if you want to really challenge yourself! Do you know the different words for counting on (more, plus, add) and back (less, minus, take away)?
