We are learning 3 sounds this week qu, ch, sh. Learn one sound a day.
These are called digraphs- two letters make one sound.
Watch Geraldine Giraffe on youtube to see what objects she finds for each letter.
Look around the house for things beginning with these sounds.
Play I spy.
Practise writing them on paper or a whiteboard and in sand or glitter.
Play a sorting game – mix up qu/ch/sh objects/pictures and sort them into the correct letter sound.
Match the letters to the picture with the correct initial sound. Have a go at writing the words.
Draw a Santa’s sack and stick pictures (from catalogues) onto the sack or draw what you would like. Have a go at writing (labelling) what you want for Christmas.
Look at the Christmas powerpoint and read the words.
