We are continuing to help children to hear the initial sounds in words.
Let's play a game of 'I spy', listening for initial sounds in the names of foods.
In school, we will use a collection of real foods or photographs.
At home, you could use a selection of food from your kitchen - just make sure that the name of each food begins with a different sound.
To play 'I spy':
If your child struggles/ needs help: slowly begin to say the name of the food.
As your child hears more of the name (eg. "mmm-iii--ll"...- for milk) it should make it easier for them to identify the food.
Challenge- ask your child to give you the clue and they say, "I spy.........", and say the initial sound of the food/ giving you the clue to the word.
