Sharing ‘phonics’ with your child

What to do:

  • Look at the book, talk about the title and picture on the front cover.
  • Read this story with your child first then encourage them to repeat any repetitive sounds or rhyming words that they have heard.
  • Encourage your child to use the pictures in order to recall events on the page after reading it to them first, pointing out pictures of similar sounding objects/ animals.
  • After reading the story, encourage your child to voice other words that rhyme with the key words that have been highlighted. (e.g. cat, hat, sat, mat, bat.)
  • Use the props to help retell the story.
