Sound Spotter Stories

Please practice reading these Sound Spotter Stories which focus on a sound a story.  If you child would like to extend these activities you could print them out, cut out the pictures and ask them to write a sentence to go with the picture. 

 

Please be aware that some children may require help with these stories.  Read with your child and if they find it difficult can you model how to read it.  Sound out (spell) each word and then say the sounds faster and faster and then say the word.  When you reach a tricky word or a high frequency word (and, the, in, to - see the attached sheets for the high frequency words) then don't sound it out, just say the word and say out loud, "This is a word I recognise from the shape."  We do not expect every child to be able to read these sheets, by reading with them you are modelling the skills they need and teaching them how to read.  We read for enjoyment so please have fun reading and you could even think of another sentence to go with them.  

There are also longer stories you could read together, finding and reading the words with the sounds in.  

A Phonics Lesson - Phase 3 Phonics Vowel Digraphs and Trigraphs| ai, ee, igh, oa

Phase 3 Phonics Vowel Digraphs and Trigraphs| ai, ee, igh, oa

'ai' Words | Blending Phonics Phase 3

Let's sound out some 'ai' words! If you want your children to sound out by themselves, simply mute the video.

'ee' Words | Blending Phonics Phase 3

Let's sound out some 'ee' words! If you want your children to sound out by themselves, simply mute the video.

igh Words | Phase 3 Phonics

Let's sound out some 'igh' words! If you would like your children to sound out independently, simply mute the video.

'oa' Words | Blending Phonics Phase 3

Let's sound out some 'oa' words! If you want your children to sound out by themselves, simply mute the video.

Additional activity suggestions:

  • Write the sounds on pieces of paper, do 3 or 4 of each sound and put one on each step of your stairs.  Encourage your child to say the sounds as they stand on each step. 
  • Write the sounds in chalk on the floor outside, shout out a sound and throw teddies/balls onto that sound.  You could shoot them with a water gun or use a nerf gun, etc.  Whatever will motivate your child the most.
  • Play hide and seek with the sounds.  This could then be developed into a word game.  Write a word by writing the sounds on separate cards e.g. y - e - ll.  Hide the sounds around the house and explain to your child they need to find the sounds and make the word 'yell'.  Your child will have to work out the sounds they need to find and bring all 3 back to you to make the word. 

Words: ai - wait Gail hail pain aim sail main tail rain bait

ee - see feel weep feet jeep seem meet week deep

igh - high sigh light might night right sight fight

oa - coat load goat loaf road soap oak toad

Games to print and play OR look at them on your device and talk about them. You could cut out 4 pieces of paper and write the sounds - ai ee igh oa. Then choose the right card for each picture.
