Phonics activity – Kung Fu Aliens!
Tell your child that we have a rucksack full of all of the things that the aliens left behind in the garden when they all climbed back into the spaceship to go home (Alien’s Love Underpants). Tell your child that they are going to take it in turns to take something out of the rucksack and say each of the sounds in the word using actions such as stomping feet, punching the air, jumping up and down e.g. pad would be p-a-d so three stomps. Pad, hat, bag, pen, brush.
Grown-ups make sure that the objects that the aliens have in the bag are simple words that your child will be able to move to. CVC or CVCC words are best for this type of game.
