Shuffle the word cards and share them between two players. The oldest player starts the game by turning over a card and placing it face up on the table or floor. Each player then takes turns placing cards, face up, next to the card. When the word card and picture card match that’s SNAP! The player with most cards at the end wins.
Play this memory game with your child to help them practise reading simple words.
Have a look at the sounds /sh/ and /ch/. Have fun saying the two sounds – do you sound like a train?
Cut out the shape below. Fold along the lines and stick down the flaps to make a cube. Then take turns to roll the sound die. Each player has to think of a word containing the ‘u’ or ‘i’ sound they roll. Then write down your words.
Use the sound button! Press the button and say the sound, then say the word.
Read these pairs of sentences. Can you put a circle around what is different in the second sentences? Now can you do your own pair now? Ask someone to spot the difference!
These animal names have vowels missing! Can you match the correct vowel to the animal?
Some words have one or two tricky letters in them. These words we just have to learn to read and spell correctly, we can’t only use ‘sounding out’. Cut out all the words below and hold them in a pile. Sit in front of your child and show them one of the words. Then show them some of the other words; when you show them a word they’ve already seen they shout ‘Full Circle’!
Read the sounds in the phoneme frame below. Can you say each word out loud? Cut out the sounds below. Can you use them to make up some words?
Can you circle the ‘ng’ sound in each of these words? These funny aliens all have silly names ending in the ‘ng’ sound! Can you read their names?
Look at the pink and orange words below. Can you see that they all have ‘ll’ endings? Draw sound buttons under each word. The first one is done for you.
Some of these words match some of the pictures. Match up the ones that you can. Which words are missing? Can you write them?
Here are some pictures. Match the picture to the letter that it begins with.
Can you cut out these pictures and put them in two piles, one for things starting with ‘s’ and one for things starting with ‘t’? A Phase 2 phonics worksheet, suitable for children in Reception.
Look at the pictures below. Do the words begin with r or f? Cut the pictures out and stick them into the correct circle.
Henry is stuck! He’s been asked to colour in everything on this page which begins with ‘q’. He’s not sure which pictures to colour in. Can you help? Get your coloured pencils out and colour in all the objects below that begin with the letter ‘q’ (the /k/ + /w/ sound).
Do you recognise all these things? Match the pictures that begin with the same sound! Then see if you can spot which one is the odd one out. This is a Phase 2 worksheet, suitable for children at the beginning of Reception.
Let's play I spy! Look around you. Can you see anything that begins with these sounds? Draw pictures in the eyes of things you see beginning with each sound.
Magnifying glass at the ready – it’s time to go on a hunt for ‘h’! Go around your house collecting things that begin with ‘h’. Once you’ve collected five things draw a picture of them in this hat. Ask your mum or dad to help you label them.
Jack and Eva are going on their summer holiday. They’ve drawn a picture list of everything they need to take with them but they’ve missed off the first letters on the words below. Can you use either an ‘h’ or a ‘b’ to complete the words?
Can you be a letter detective and spy the sounds /g/ and /k/ in this box? Colour the ‘g’s in red and the ‘k’s in blue. Then match the pictures to the sound that they begin with and colour the pictures in.
