Have four, five and six phoneme frames available- see attached 


Say a word e.g. think and model counting out phonemes on your fingers. Ask children how to write each of the phonemes. Count them off against your fingers to check that you haven’t forgotten any. Children then need to write the word in the correct phoneme frame.. Continue with more words that will fit into a four, five and six phoneme frame.  


 Read a sentence. Ask children to write on whiteboards (or use magnetic letters). Encourage children to soundtalk challenging words:


A shrimp slept in a shell.

A crab crept into a crack.

An octopus puts on lots of pink socks with brown spots.
