This week we are looking at the letter R, actually we a listening to the ‘r’ sound that this letter can make. Slight difference there but I focus on the phoneme - the sound - rather then the letter name.
I have set up next the TV a small toast rack that I bought in an second hand shop. It holds the sandpaper letter R, that I bought from Wood Puzzles here in Queensland. It also displays ‘My “r” Book’ by Jane Belk Moncure and ‘Sleepy Cheetah’ by Mwnye Hadithj.
First we practised writing the letter by tracing over the sandpaper as we made the R sound.
I then read ‘My “r” book’ aloud, really pointing out and emphasising that R sound. These books a super cute and Atlas really enjoys them, I have the vintage set which I bought off eBay.
We then read ‘Sleepy Cheetah’ which has many R sounds. The illustrations are beautiful and soft, and I love the similes used through out the story. I pointing out the lower case letter R every now and then as well.
We will read ‘Sleepy Cheetah’ through out the week and work on related and fun activities... I just haven’t planned out what they are yet 😂
