Phase 1 , Letters and Sounds. I filled pairs of eggs with different objects (bells, oats, rice, sand, pennies etc.) the children had to find 2 eggs that had the same sound. Quite tricky, and really encouraged careful listening.
Jolly Phonics is a fun and child centred approach to teaching literacy through synthetic phonics. With actions for each of the 42 letter sounds, the multi-sensory method is very motivating for children and teachers, who can see their students achieve. The letter sounds are split into seven groups as shown below.
This engaging activity is great for subitising and learning the first 6 jolly phonics sounds at the same time! Students roll a six sided dice and cross the letter which corresponds with the number on the table. First player to cross off all their sounds wins!
An interactive PowerPoint that can be worked through at your own pace. Each slide shows a picture that can be made up of the sounds s,a,t,p,i,n,m or d. Children can listen to the sounds before making their choices. A similar idea to hangman but without the penalties. Includes a printable supporting activity.
