Today we will be re-visiting the 'ow' sound (ACTIONS: RO'C hold shoulder saying 'ow', RC point down.)
Look in challenge bag - can your child find the 'ow' sound?
Practise saying the sound.
Loading 'Busy Things' (handwiting section) before writing the sound using a pencil/pen/chalk would be a useful tool to practise the correct formation.
Write it in the air - start on the line then curl around the caterpillar, around the orange and squirt (horizontal join), down, up, down up flick.
Play Buried Treasure/Dragon's Den/Picnic on Pluto - this can be completed on-line using 'Phonics Play', select phase 3, 'ow'
Make a set of coins with the following words: now, down, owl, cow, how, town, fown, owp, hown, lown and use the buried treasure mat which was in the home learning pack.
Hold up captions (use the screen/print off captions/copy on a piece of paper)
Encourage your child to read the caption - can they spot any tricky words? Can they blend the sounds together?
1. The owl is not feeling sad and down.
2. I park my car in town.
3. How do I feed a cow?
