Phase 1 Phonics - Which one?
Place on the floor or on a table a selection of objects with names containing three phonemes (e.g. hat, peg, fork, cup, book, tin,). Check that your child knows the names of the objects. The toy or adult says “I spy with my little eye a z-i-p”. Then invite your child to say the name of the object and hold it up. Encourage your child to say the individual phonemes and blend them together ‘z-i-p, zip’. When your child has become familiar with this game use objects with names that start with the same initial phoneme (e.g. cat, cap, cup, coat, key). This will really encourage the children to listen and then blend right through the word, rather than relying on the initial sound.
