Phonics

Helping children to develop their memory skills, will help them to recall letter shapes and letter sounds later.

Kim's Game is a great way for children to develop memory/ recall skills:

  • Choose a selection of 6 toys (fitting with our topic of 'Toys') or household objects.
  • Talk to your child about each object, one at a time, as you place each object on a tray or towel.
  • Then give your child time to look at the tray/ towel.
  • Once he/she has had time to look, cover the tray with a tea towel and take an object away.
  • Ask your child which object is missing.

If your child struggles to recall the missing object, give a little description as you show it.

Try again with only 4 objects.

Challenge - try playing with 10 objects on the tray or towel.

 

Children learn rhythm and rhyme when singing simple songs and nursery rhymes:

Head Shoulders Knees & Toes

Miss Polly Had a Dolly

Wheels on the Bus
