We will start as we always do by recognising our own name.
Please write 5+ different name cards (including your child's name) for your child to recognise and select their own name from.
The quantity of name cards should vary depending on how easily your child is able to recognise their own name. This should be being increased gradually.
I want to give out lots of dojo's for this task so please let me know how you get on with this task.
For phonics today I would like you to play 'Polar Bear says...' with somebody in your house.
Your grown up will give you instructions to complete an action or task for example
"touch your nose"
If they say "Polar bear says...touch your nose" then you must complete the action.
If they do not say "polar bear says..." before the action then you must not complete the action.
So, make sure you listen very carefully because your grown up will try to trick you!
Once you have had your turn listening, switch over so you are in charge.
Finally, I would like you to sing "If you're happy and you know it..."
I have attached a copy of the lyrics below for you to follow for some ideas but you might want to make your own actions up for it, using the body percussion we have practised together.
Make sure you send me a video of your super phonics learning for lots of dojos.
