This week’s theme is Reading and Rhyme
Have some fun writing letters and words in sensory materials like sand or flour.
Practice mark making/ writing letters/ writing CVC words/ writing sentences about things you see.
Use small objects and toys to create a scene to match the words and read the sentences e.g The cat is in the box. The man with a hat.
Match CVC words to toys and objects
Create a comfy corner or a den for looking at books.
Have a tray of household items, such as: car, jar, star, sock, rock, lock, cap, map, can, pan, fan, bell, shell, rice, dice, etc. Group the rhyming items/ objects.
App: ‘Meet Millie’ (book 1 free) - You can purchase further adventure books with interaction on every page. Interesting story, good modern graphics and Millie springs to life with her photos.
If you are searching using the computer start a list of words that you like to look up.
Read or watch a story together and then ask questions such as
Share nursery rhymes together/watch nursery rhyme videos/songs online
Rhyming scavenger hunt - find something that rhymes with.... (have a selection of items in a box for them to hunt through)
Build a tower of rhyming words - write words onto lego pieces. Children can find words that rhyme and then build a tower of rhyming words
Splat the rhyming word - write down different words - some that rhyme and some that don't. Say a word and when you find a word that rhymes, splat it!
