magnetic lettersA whiteboard with letters of the alphabet along the bottom. Click on a letter for it to appear on the whiteboard. Useful for writing tricky words. Suitable for the 'revisit and review' and 'teach' parts of daily phonics lessons with large groups and also the 'practise' part of sessions with smaller groups when each child/pair of children have access to the internet. Less fiddly than using magnetic letters on a large magnetic board (if you are lucky enough to have one!).

Foam Phonemes (writing)

A set of single letter graphemes and digraphs which, when pressed, are fired from a cannon (just ignore the graphemes that haven't been introduced at this stage). They can then be dragged onto the water to make words. Useful for writing tricky words (mostly using the letters on the left hand site, as if they were magnetic letters). Suitable for the 'revisit and review' and 'teach' parts of daily phonics lessons with large groups and also the 'practise' part of sessions with smaller groups when each child/pair of children have access to the internet.

Writing Trays (writing)

Below are links to a variety of creative trays you can make and use in the classroom for children to practise writing tricky words. Select one that links to the children's interests or the current time of year, as this should motivate them to write. Either leave on the writing table or set up as an adult initiated activity for practising the spelling of tricky words. Also useful for writing activities with small intervention groups (the children would need a tray each).
