Some games that you can play

  • How many things can you find with these sound in them? i.e. chair, butter.
  • Place the four sounds ear, air, ure, er in the four corners of a room or four spaces on the floor. Ask someone to call out the sounds? Can you run to the correct one? How fast can you get there?
  • Act it out. Think of a word containing one of the new sounds i.e. beard. Mime this word to a family member. Can they figure out what word/sound you have used?
  • Hide and seek. Hide the letters a, r, e, h, e, r around the house. Can you find them all? Can they then arrange them to spell out the new tricky words ‘are’ and her’.
