choose a random flashcard, spell it out and pronounce it. The blindfolded student then guesses who is speaking. If they are correct the student who read the flash card takes their place. Hangman-students guess letters to spell a word on the board. The focus vocab as well as phonic words are used in this game. Musical chair-a flashcard is placed on the chairs and students move round them to the music. A chair is removed each time. When the music stops the students sit down and must read the flashcard on their chair. If they cant read the card or if they cant find a chair they are out of the game.

Phonics: Review:

In phonics we will recap the previous sounds and words (cl, clam, clap, clip, fl, flag, flap, pl, plan, plane, play) using phonics flashcards. Continue to work through Phonics book 3. Practice the new sounds and words on the board, reciting as a whole and individually. Read pages 6-9 in the reader as a group so the students can understand the meaning of the words. Also pay attention to prepositions on, in and under and 'here' and 'there.' Do exercises in the activity book on pages 6-9. Exercises include circling the correct answer, tracing and writing the correct word and understanding prepositions. Play splat-students hit letters called out by the teacher and try to guess which word is being spelled out. Recap the vowel sounds as some students are still mixing them up. Focus on handwriting mistakes, especially making sure the letters are the correct size and in the right position. This week we will review the phonics from the past few weeks, paying attention to common mistakes. We will practice handwriting, making sure the letters are the correct shape and position.

Notes / parent follow up: Please help your child to speak clearly and loudly and encourage them to speak English with you. Here is a fun video that you can watch with your child. This is what we have been covering in class and it will help their vocabulary a lot.
