Phase 3 phonics- Help!!

Discussion in 'Primary' started by pottyparrot, Apr 21, 2012.

  1. I have an interview for a year 1 post, but they have asked me to prepare to teach phase 3 phonics (children are on to diagraphs) for the reception class.

    I am just starting my year 1 placement next week (where I will be learning about how to teach phonics and putting into practice), so although this is where I want to be, I haven't had much experience in KS1 or reception yet, as my first 2 placements were KS2. So I don't know where to start with this.

     Can anyone help? Or guide me to somewhere to get an idea of what I should be doing?

     I don't want to loose out on a job because of bad timing- in a few weeks time when i've been in ks1 for a bit I probably would have been fine.

  3. Look up the letters and sounds guidelines and choose a game or two to use. Have a look for a rhyming story you can use and then identify words in the story with a particular sound. Let them make posters in groups for a particular sound by drawing pictures and writing the word.
     
  4. I can send you some resources if you let me know which particular digraphs you want to cover.

  5. I'm not sure which to cover, they never told me what they have already done, so ill ring the school on monday and find out which they haven't done yet.

    :) Thank you
