When children are introduced to a letter, we use a multi-sensory way: they first hear and say the sound, then see the letter along side a mnemonic. Seeing the mnemonic helps them link the sound to the letter. Finally, they practise the movements needed to form the letter.
*A mnemonic is something that helps us to remember a topic or idea. A mnemonic could be a rhyme, a song, a picture and many more.
My letters and Sounds use pictures behind the letters, an alliteration sentence and an action as a mnemonic (used to help children remember).
In phase 2, sounds should be pronounced in a way that makes blending easier. To help support your child at home, the PowerPoints below provide an audio of the sounds, the alliteration sentence and the picture.
