Let's start today with a song:

We are going to focus on blending sounds to say the word, this week.
Today, we are going to use kitchen words and food in your picnic.
Tell your child that you are going to break up/ segment a word for them to spell/ blend the sounds together quickly to say the word, eg.
f---o---x, f---o---x, f--o--x, f--o--x, f-o-x, fox
g---oa---t, g---oa---t, g---oa---t, g--oa--t, g-oa-t, goat
m---ou---s, m---ou---s, m--ou--s, m-ou-s, mouse
(Note- I have spelt mouse without the 'e' as you would say it).
Challenge- If your child can blend letter sounds easily to say the word, you could ask them to break/ segment/ chop a word so that you can blend it together.
Be careful to choose words that can be easily broken into 2 or 3 sounds as longer words are too complicated at this stage. Good words to use are: cat: c--a--t, leg: l--e--g, pot: p--o--t.
Today is 'Wiggle Wednesday' so let's end the session today with one of our favourite 'wiggles'.
Do you remember when we danced and laughed together in Nursery?
I miss you lots and hope you are having fun at home.
