Word Wizard Phonics Advanced Set 8: Trigraphs ire.ear.ure

(0)
Introducing vowel trigraphs ‘ire’, ‘ear’ and ‘ure’ To become a Word Wizard you need to learn magic spells! The Word Wizard Phonics & Handwriting schemes are designed for teachers, tutors and parents to use without needing specialist training. Free planning examples can be found at thinky.xyz Features of the phonics scheme include: exploring letter shapes exploring letter sounds building spoken vocabulary and grammar continuous progressive consolidation The Advanced Sets build upon children’s knowledge of basic phonics and introduce additional ways of spelling. These are typically taught to children after they have learned their basic consonants and short vowels and have learned to write their lowercase letters (details of relevant resources for these earlier stages are listed at the bottom). Every letter shape has been deconstructed for children to trace with their Word Wands (or magic pointing fingers). Each new letter is placed into a word alongside letters that children have previously learned. This ensures children are continuously consolidating their learning and helps them understand the relationship between letters and words. Each new word includes a symbol and a definition to help prompt discussions about how words can be used in spoken language. Supporting children to develop their spoken vocabulary and grammar in this way helps ensure they can use phonics as an effective reading strategy. Children can develop their fine motor skills by cutting and pasting letters into words with the Word Maker sheets and they can work with friends to create Word Lines and better understand how letters form words. Included in this resource: Explore sounds with mouth shapes Variations of letter shapes for print and handwriting Examples of words that can be made using phonemes that have been previously taught Discussion prompts about using words in spoken sentences Sentence Line activity Letter Sound and Shape sheets Flashcards with sound symbols Word Maker sheets ~~~~ Other Resources ~~~~ Word Wizard Phonics Expected Sets: Introducing consonants, short vowels and some long vowels Phonics Consolidation 1-6: Extended consolidation for basic phonemes Phonics Consolidation 7-10: Extended consolidation for basic phonemes Phonics Monitoring & Assessment: including individual and class tracking

Stage 1 Story Writer: An Introduction to Handwriting

Stage 1 Story Writer: An Introduction to Handwriting

(0)
Stage 1 Story Writer is a pre-writing writing activity! It’s intended to be used BEFORE children begin to develop their formal handwriting skills and shortly after they have started learning to read. The activity involves children having a go at writing sentences as part of an overall story. They are not ‘taught’ to write but are instead asked to dive straight in and just give it a go. The aim is to focus on handwriting as an enjoyable activity while providing a baseline for children’s writing skills. When the story has been completed children will be able to see the progress they have made having received only minimal guidance. This helps them to recognise how their skills develop and equips them with confidence prior to beginning their structured handwriting lessons. Children can return to the characters in the story towards the end of the school year with the Stage 2 Story Writer activity which can be used to demonstrate the progress children have made across the school year. Both resources provide a lasting memento for teachers (and children) and lots of evidence for teachers. Guidance and examples for this resource is available here.
