Foundation Tricky Word Recognition 6.1.17
To our surprise, the bottom playground was covered in enormous tricky words. We had to jump on the correct word when it was said. We ran around and looked with our beady eyes to see which ones were there. We were really challenged when Mrs Miller spelt them out using alphabet names not letter sounds (phonemes).
Remember to keep learning those tricky words at home please.
We have been learning how to spell the tricky word ‘was’ using the mnemonic ‘wake a snake’. If Mrs Dann and Mrs Miller saw it spelt correctly, then slowly, but surely the snake was awoken and charmed from his sleep in a hat.
Check out our spelling and joined handwriting.
Do you know any other mnemonics for tricky words?
Our phonic’s mission today was to find a tricky word on the playground, read it, then find someone else with the same word to match it, then write it and say a sentence with it it. The extra challenge was to write a sentence with the tricky word in it. Keep practising the tricky words at home. Your hard work is paying off.
