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

Pictures of objects that the child is interested in

Toy magnifying glass (or cut out one) - optional

Put all the pictures out and go through them to make sure the child knows the names of the objects.

Tell the child that he is going to be detective and find the right word.

Tell him to find the word with a specific sound at the beginning / end. E.g. 'find a word that starts with 's'. Have the child use the magnifying glass to 'hunt' for the word.

Use finger cues to make it clear which sound you want him to find.

Make sure you say the word when he has found it, and emphasise the sound at the start / end.

Fishing game

Pictures of objects the child is interested in, with paper clips attached

magnetic fishing rods

'pond' e.g. a flat box

You can use round magnets with holes in them on string to make fishing lines.

Use finger cues to make it clear which sound you want him to find.

Make sure you say the word when he has found it, and emphasise the sound at the start / end
