Record of children requiring extra support 16 Ideas for extra support Ask teaching assistant / parent to play Word Puzzles with those children identified as requiring extra support. Unit 1 Tuning in Review how to blend phonemes together to read words. Explain to children that not all words have three phonemes like /c/ /a/ /t/. Some words have more than three phonemes so they’ll have to concentrate harder to read these words. Display and share the childspeak learning intention and success criteria with the class. Learn with me Display an enlarged Word Puzzle on the board for the word ‘ milk ’. Ask children to show on their fingers how many sounds are in the word ‘ milk ’. Complete Word Puzzles for at least 5 different words. As CVCC and CCVC words are more difficult to read and spell than simple CVC words emphasise the stretching of the word as you say it. Your turn As a whole class children play Penguin Pops. For this unit use words from Word List 1 on each penguin rather than just phonemes. Back together Play Star Catcher using words from Word List 1. Record the names of any children who are unable to read at least 2 four phoneme words.
