 TOP TIPS!

 Early years phonics workshop (letters and sounds)

We attended a workshop at Chandlers ford infant school and here are some key points to help your children at home;

 Forming letters

  • when your child is ready encourage correct pencil grip.
  • use only captitals in the correct place i.e. at beginning of names, lower case formation should be encouraged.
  • encourage and praise all writing and mark making.

being successful

  • encourage talk
  • have fun with phonics
  • read to and with your child
  • encourage mark making and writing
  • praise your child 

Phonics

Remember...children need to use letter sounds not names to decode words.

  • Read lots even when out and about e.g. shop names, road signs
  • singing
  • play sound games
  • story telling
  • i spy games
  • talk, talk and more talk

REMEMBER HAVE FUN!
