In this little box there are 55 phonics cards showing 110 different graphemes (letters that represent a sound). Teach your child the initial letter sounds first e.g. s, a, t, p etc - these cards have an orange border. Hold a card up and model the initial letter sound and ask your child to repeat it back to you. The pictures on the cards give an example of that phonic sound e.g. the picture of a boat illustrates the ‘oa’ sound. To help your child you could sound out the initial letter of the word twice e.g. s-s-sat or you could play ‘I Spy’. To emphasise the sounds you could use alliteration e.g. Peter Piper Picked a Pickled Pepper. Once your child has mastered these sounds, move onto word building. Teach CVC (consonant, vowel, consonant) words first e.g. sat – s-a-t.
