Ww/E1.3

Ww/E1.3 Use basic sound-symbol association to help spelling, as appropriate for the needs of the learner
(a) understand that sounds are associated with letters and strings of letters
(b) understand that there are more sounds (phonemes) in English than letters of the alphabet, so some sounds are represented by combinations of letters
(c) understand that there are many common letter patterns that can be learnt to help spelling
(d) understand that, to learn to spell, it is important to develop an awareness of sound patterns
(e) know how to identify and segment phonemes in words for spelling
(f) understand the terms vowel and consonant

Using this resource, learners at E1-2 level learn to recognise vowels and consonants, spell the days of the week and identify these spellings with everyday activities and calendar usage. At E2-3 level learners can use the resource to develop their ideas into sentences that incorporate days of the week.

Students need to work in pairs and throw a coin (heads, move 1; tails move 2). Each time they land on a blend they need to write down a word with that blend in it. Great when laminated.
