This lovely worksheet gives children practice at both initial sounds and counting - and fun colouring too.
Phonics Phase One Aspect 5: Alliteration
In Aspect 5 we encourage children to start listening for the phonemes in words. Ultimately, Aspect 5 aims to help children to hear the initial sounds of words. We've got lots of resources to help below.
- Emphasise - when saying words, enunciate the initial sounds carefully
- Play I Spy - with initial sounds.
- The name game - help the kids recognise the initial sounds in their own, and family members' names.
- What else? - pick up or point to an object and say its name, emphasising the initial sound. Can the children think of anything else that starts with the same sound?
- Silly phrases - make up silly phrases using children's names or particular interests eg Lindsay loves lollipops!
