Supporting Phonics at Home

·         Try to spend at least 5 minutes a day doing ‘sounds’ activities.

·         When blending words with your child, use only letter sounds, not letter names (alphabet) as this can be confusing for children learning to sound out words.

·         Little and often is most effective.

·         Point out letter sounds and words frequently; books, magazines, newspapers and signs etc, all provide the opportunity for sound

·         Recognition and put reading into context for your child.

·         Allow your child to sound out and write words on the computer, using magnetic letter boards, chalk boards etc. Anything that interests them!
