Read Write Inc- Sounds

For formation videos- SCROLL DOWN

We have now begun learning three sounds a week in reception. We will teach these three sounds throughout the week through whole class sessions and activities throughout the day.
 
As part of learning sounds, it is very important that children practice the sounds at home aswell as in school. We will be sending a 'Sound Book' every Friday in your child's book bag.

The 'Sound Book' will contain three sounds; a sound card per page. The children should practice saying and recognising the sound and the forming the letter correctly into the book.

It is really important that the Sound Book is sent in every Thursday to ensure all sound cards are up to date and so that your child does not fall behind.
 
Example: "maisey, mountain, mountain". Say this 2 or 3 times, and then form the letter with your child whilst saying this to ensure correct formation.

Read Write Inc sound cards are available to buy for £6.50 from school. 

 

I found these creative ideas online and thought I'd share them with you...

Make an Alphabet Book

Make your own alphabet book with you child. Help your child make a page with each letter. You can have him write the letter or find the letter in an old magazine and cut it out. Cut out pictures from an old coloring book or magazine that has words that start with the letter on the page.

 

Play the abc game whenever you drive somewhere

Whenever you drive anywhere play the abc game. Have your child find the letter a on signs, or books. Start with the letter m and then look for other letters we have learnt. 

Play the Alphabet Memory Game

You can purchase flashcards of the lower case alphabet or make your own with card or paper. You can play pairs or snap with the ccards. You can match the sound to a picture or object, or make two sets of the sounds and play snap. Each time your child matches the letters have him tell you what letter it is.

 

Make an Alphabet Photo collage

Purchase disposable cameras for your child. Take a trip outside, to the park, zoo, or wherever. Spend your time looking for pictures of words that start with the letter a or b, or whichever letter you choose. When you get the photos developed let your child cut them out and glue them onto a collage. Children love taking pictures and this is a lot of fun.

 

Play Alphabet Bingo

Make your own Bingo cards. Write the letters of the alphabet on it. Call out the letters and have your child mark them or put a Bingo chip on the letter. When your child wins they can yell out Bingo! Make an Alphabet finger painting

 

Play the Alphabet Hide Away Game

Fill a bag with different objects that start with different letter sounds. For example, you could fill it with a car, a book, a pencil, etc. Show the child all the items in the bag. Then put all the items back in the bag. Have them find the items by touching them only. Say can you find something that starts with the letter b? Say what sound does the b make? Then see if they can find the book in your bag just by touching. This game is not only good for learning letters and sounds but also helps them with using their senses and tactile skills
