Play Word Matching Game, Blend Sounds to Make Words
Starting school, means starting to do homework. My little girl was given a reading folder and brought home a reading book every week. We practised her reading and I would write in her journal a note for the teacher about how well she had done. If she was improving she would get moved up a reading band. Where she would start to read more complex books, with longer words and sentence.
We did my little girls reading homework in the evening, after dinner, when she was not too tired. We started by reading just the letters in words from the books. Then built up to reading letters together as sounds, such as the "ch" at the start of "chicken". Before blending all the sounds and letters together to say full words.
Blending Sounds Card
The Mooki Cards contain a “Blending Sounds” card. To help you, get help for the dyslexic child. Use the card below on your phone or tablet for free!
Match Pictures - When the child has blended the sounds to read the full word on the card above. Ask them to match the word to the pictures, such as the word "Moon" with the picture of a "Moon". The dyslexic brain thinks better in pictures. So the child will be more likely to remember the letters, spelling of a word if it is matched to a picture.
Play Again - This card can be used time and time again. See the "High Frequency Words Lists for Children Learning To Read With Dyslexia" list, for extra words to practise. Write the word you would like to practise, on a piece of paper. Separate the word into sounds, as on the card above. Then look for a picture or object that matches the word. This can be items from around the house, pictures in a magazine or by searching on the internet.
