You will need:
Plastic blocks, marker
Write the letters for words that the child is already aware of on blocks. (Refer to the image)
Write one letter on one block.
An important stage in learning to read is mastering the three-letter words, especially the CVC words. (consonant/vowel/consonant) Once a child knows the letter sounds, they are only a short step away from reading.
• Keep the three blocks together to show the child that when these three letters come together, they make a word. For example, keep blocks with /c/, /a/, /n/ together to make the word /can/.
• Ask the child to say the sound of each letter from left to right, in sequence, and then try saying these sounds faster to get the word /can/.
