Word Detectives

On page 21 – Re-visit the rule and then ask children to complete a one minute wonder (see Phonics Terminology Guide). Children should read down the columns on the wordbank.  Time your child for one minute. How many words can they read in one minute correctly?  Encourage them to use the scooping already completed to help them read the words correctly.  Repeat and see if they can keep beating their score, record the scores in the boxes at the bottom of sheet.  Practice any words they have found tricky. 

Spend 5-10 minutes practicing the spelling list ready for our test on Friday.
