This set consists of 7 files of Microsoft Powerpoint-based activities that you can use at home on your computer with your child, or for online classes. Recommended for ages 5 and above.
The letters are grouped into sets which we use in our phonics programme - letters that look similar have been separated (e.g. b/d, n/u, etc.), and each earlier set contains at least one vowel. They go well with our Aa-Zz Flash Cards for introduction of the (hard) consonant and short vowel sounds!
These colourful slides help your child to practice listening to starting sounds in words, and to distinguish between very similar sounds like /b/ and /d/, /p/ and /b/, /m/ and /n/, /s/ and /x/. Note that we have excluded "x" from the starting sound activities as the most common sound of "x" (/ks/ sound) appears at the END of words like in "box" or "mix". Hence, a separate "x" ending sound activity has been included here instead.
7 sets of sound sorting slides, grouped by the letter sets below, for a total of 70 slides of activities.
6) x - ending sounds
7) mixed group set
Each set consists of slides in a progressive difficulty level
i. identify each letter sound
ii. differentiate between 2 letter sounds
iii. differentiate between 3 letter sounds
How to use
Each slide has 6-8 pictures. The teacher should say the name of each picture for the child to listen, then drag and drop an icon to indicate the starting sound of the picture. The name for each picture aka answers have been included in the 'Notes' section at the bottom of each slide.
