Phonics

This week, we are reading the book, 'Jasper's Beanstalk', when Jasper, the cat, plants a seed and waits for it to grow.

Talk to your child about the story as you read together to develop their vocabulary and support their  understanding.


At the end of the story, talk to your child about Jasper's feelings, when he is excited, angry, sad and happy. Can they understand why he felt this way? Have they ever had those feelings? When?

Jasper's Beanstalk

As we learn the days of the week in the story this week, we are going to be listening for the sounds at the start of the names of the days:

  • mmmmmmm....Monday
  • t-t-t-t-t-t-t-t-..Tuesday 
  • wwwwwww....Wednesday

 

We will be looking for objects that start with that sound on those days

  • On, Monday- we could look at pictures or toys of a mat, milk, mouse or monkey
  • On, Tuesday- we could look at pictures or toys of a table, tiger, toilet or tomato 
  • On, Wednesday- we could look at pictures or toys of a wheel, worm, witch or wellies

 

Look around your home with your child for things that begin with any of these sounds.
