‘ai’ Phoneme spotter
Read the extract and highlight any words you spot that contain the ‘ai’ digraph? How many did you find? Did you spot any tricky words?
Can you write a sentence contain a word that you spotted in the story?
Revisit and review
Each lesson we begin by revisiting previous learning. We do this by attempting to identify the sound each grapheme (letter/s) makes before revisiting 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.
