Activity/strategy name and materials required How to do the activity Key principles for doing the activity and comments
'Jenga'

'Jenga' or similar stacking game using wooden blocks.

Pictures of words containing the target sound at the appropriate place in the word: these pictures should be stuck on the blocks.

Play Jenga by the normal rules, but as you pull a block out of the stack, say the name of the picture that's on it.

You take turns with the child/children - when it's your turn you say the word, when it is the child's turn, they have a go at saying it.

If the child says the sound well - or better than they have done - reinforce with a strong "good". If they make an attempt, but it is less clear, say "good try".

You can try getting the sound wrong occasionally yourself - see if the child corrects you.
