Do the children you work with find it difficult to recognise capital letters?
Although not specificially mentioned in LaS, the phonics lesson would be a good time to teach capital letters for both reading and writing. I would suggest starting at Phase 3, but other practitioners may wish to start at Phase 2.
This month's gold treasure chest resource is a set of capital letter grapheme cards which can be used in various ways during the phonics lesson to help children to be able to recognise capital letters, so they can blend words containing them, as well as helping them learn how to use them for spelling.
This half term's videos are all about mnemonics to help children spell tricky words and homophones. Each video will give you an idea you can use at school if you are a teacher/TA or at home if you are a parent. You can view the videos on my Facebook Page
Makes interesting reading, particularly for those headteachers, teachers and parents who completed the survey earlier this summer.
This month's gold treasure chest resource is a set of Phase 5a Tricky Word Spelling Dominoes and a set of Phase 5b Tricky Word Spelling Dominoes. There are large versions for whole class teaching and small versions which can be used as adult initiated activities.
