Phase 2 sounds
for those who have been in Nursery since September.
Letter sounds m a s d t i n (consolidation)
If you can continue to work on the children recognising the grapheme (letter shape) and saying the sound. Children sort items that start with the sound next to the letter (just write letter – lower case - on a bit of paper) hunt around the house and garden for things that start with that sound.
Play I spy (a picture sheet is below) if not just around the home any sounds will do as the auditory aspect of this is the important bit.
Singing and finger exercises
Early years Emily on you tube is fab, if you have any playdough at home (the songs can be done without the dough if you want!) These activities are finger strengthening exercises to music, that help with the development of muscles in the hands for early writing.
If you haven’t got devise access then threading, lego building, using BBQ tongs or tweezers to move things from one dish to another etc
