Phonics: Different spellings of the 'ai' sound 27.4.20
We would like you to have a go at investigating the different ways to spell the 'ai' sound in words using the NEW Phonics Play website.
Today, try playing the 'Word Sort' game, moving the words into the different columns according to how the 'ai' sound is spelt in that word.
Encourage your child to sound out and then blend the words each time. You could then ask them to have a go at choosing some of the words to write in simple sentences. Can they spot and colour in the 'ai' sounds in their sentences?
You could also have a go at reading the tricky and decodable words in phase 5 using the game 'Tricky Trucks' on the phonics bloom website.
