This week we are going to be looking at the new digraph ‘ai’. This digraph can be found in words such as ‘pain’ and ‘chain’. Here is Mr. Thorne and Geraldine the Giraffe to explain the difference for you.
Can you segment and blend to read the words with Geraldine?
Can you choose a word that Geraldine found around her house and use this word in a sentence?
Here is one example for you:
The rain is wet and cold.
Each lesson we begin by revisiting previous learning. We do this by attempting to identify the sound each grapheme (letter/s) makes. Before revising the tricky words we have learned.
Can you identify the sounds on the flashcards?
Before starting the game ensure graphemes from Phase 3 sets 6-9 are selected only.
Can you read the tricky words we have learned in class? Write down any you find tricky and come back to these during the day. Tricky words are words that cannot easily be sounded out as they contain sounds the children have not yet learned.
