Choose a Green or Red Word that you have read in any of the Ditty’s, can you put it into a simple sentence and write it in your Green Writing Book?
Don’t forget, no pencils yet! Build your sentence first, is it a super sentence? Get those Fred fingers ready, we are going to squeeze one word on to each finger to help us remember the sentence. Keep practising until you know your sentence really well. What comes at the end of your sentence? Practise your sentence again and don’t forget a full stop at the end.
Now you know your sentence really well, have a go at writing it.
If you need a little help, ask your grown up to do a line for each word in your sentence just like we do at school.
E.g. The sentence: ‘The cat on the mat’ would look like: ______ ________ ____ _______ ______ – children will then say their sentence, pointing at each line whilst saying the word that they need to write on each one before they start.
To finish our Phonics learning today, have a little read of your book all by yourself. Which Ditty is your favourite?
