This week focus on phonics activities. Phonics instruction teaches children the critical sound and spelling relationships they need to be successful readers. Children at this age fall into many different levels of reading ability. It’s important to know that most lessons can be stretched to vary level of difficulty. If you find your child reading and spelling most words easily, ask them to use words in a sentence. Then encourage them to write complete sentences. Of course, provide help when they need it. Just remember, the important factor is that you are participating in the activity. Get starting by writing the blends “Br” “Cr” and “Dr” at the top of a page. Write word endings “ab” “eam” “aw” “oke” “ape” “op” “eak” “oss” ib: and more below. Have your child match the blends to make words.
