The sound for this week is ‘a’. Can you please work on this sound with your child at home in their sound copies. We would like you to encourage your child to:
- say the sound out loud
- think of words that have the ‘a’ sound (this can be at the beginning, e.g. ant, in the middle, e.g. bag or at the end, e.g. Africa)
- draw pictures of the words they come up with on the relevant sound page
- trace the letter with their finger
- practice writing the letter.
Please remember to use the sounds and not the letter names with your child.
If you haven’t left a folder in your child’s bag yet it would be great if you could do so this week.
Thanks for all the materials you have sent in for Aistear – we really appreciate it!
Susan & Peter
