Letter sound 'zz'
Today we are looking at another new sound 'zz.' However this sound isn't completely new as we looked at 'z' last week! It just looks a little bit different - it has two of the same letter. Two letters together that make one sound is called a 'diagraph.' After today we are going to be moving onto diagraphs, so you will learn lots and lots of them! Below is a video to help you to revise the sounds we have learnt in Phase 2. In my lesson today we reminded ourselves of the sounds we have learnt whilst we have been at home. Did you remember them all? You will also find below the tricky word song to sing along to! Scroll down a little more to see our new tricky word of the week.
In my lesson today we also had Mr Monster and Geraldine playing a game with Miss Baulcomb, sorting out the real words and the silly 'monster' words! Well done for helping to sort them out with Miss Baulcomb! If you scroll down below you will find these words that I had in my lesson if you would like to play this game at home, as well as some more activities for 'zz' that you can choose from, (please don't feel you have to complete all of them).
One activity is 'Find and Write.' Can you find the words that feature 'zz' in? Can you write them? On the sheet their are different sheets to choose from. You could write them on the line if you feel confident with that, you could write the letters in the boxes or you could use the sheets with letters on that will help to give you some clues! You choose what is best for you! You will also find below a Phonics board game that you could play. If you don't have a printer, maybe you could draw your own board game and write the words on yourself?
