Phase 3 - ear air

Hi. I hope you are well and ready for another week of phonics. We have nearly covered all of Phase 3 now. 

w.b. 18.5.20 ear air

In our group this week we are going to focus on recapping the Phase tri-graphs (three letters making one sound) ear in beard and air in hair.

At the end of the week we are also going to practice the Phase 3 tricky words learnt. 

                                                                              

Lesson 1 - ear

 *Practice reading and writing all of the Phase 3 sounds using https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/member-only/Flashcards.html

*Listen to the Jolly Phonics songs for phase three, The j sound is the beginning of Phase 3 and starts at 5 min 27 seconds, so you could start from here. https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2wpdvv

*Today's focus is the trigraph ear in beard. Practice writing this in the air/on your hand/in shaving foam or a thin layer of sugar, sand or flour in a tray, on a whiteboard or paper. I have included a photo of a slide so your child can see how it sits on the line. Say the formation rhymes as you write them in lowercase:

e -  lift off the top and scoop out the egg.

a – all around the apple, don’t forget the leaf.

r - down the robots back and curl over his arm.

*Can you read the ear words on the video on Tapestry and write ears, fear, earring.

*Phonics play - Try the Phase 3 game: Buried Treasure. Select ear words or revise all Phase 3 depending on your confidence level. https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/member-only/BuriedTreasure2.html

Updated 21.5.2020 

I hope you have had a good week and enjoyed reviewing and learning the Trigraphs air and ear.

To start our session, I would like you to practice writing the words: hair and beard.

 Now review the tricky words by listening to the tricky word songs:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R087lYrRpgY   (Phase 3)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvMyssfAUx0&t=9s  (Phase 2) Dancing cuddly toys are optional.

*Write out all of the Phase 3 words twice for your child.  They are:- he we me be she all they her are my was you

Play matching pairs where you take it in turns to choose 2 words. Are they the same word? If they aren’t, turn them back over again. Keep them if they are the same. Play until all of the pairs of words have been found. You could alternatively write them all out on one piece of paper, asking your child to find the pairs of words then read what they are.

*Look at the words he we me be she. What is the same about all of them? They all have an e but it makes an ee sound. This is why they are tricky words. Think of some sentences with one or two of the words in. Here are some ideas:- He wanted to be a zoo keeper. She saw me at the fair. Pick your best sentence to write. It could be funny or even connected to a story.  

*Go on the Phonics play website - Sentences Phase 3

https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/member-only/Sentences3.html where you will see some tricky word sentences. Read the he we me be she sentences.

~Extension - There is a Tricky word snakes and ladders game to play and a story to read and find the tricky words too.

Please like this observation on Tapestry as acknowledgement that you have received it. 

Thank you
