ACTIVITY 1- SOUND HUNT
Go on a sound hunt around your house, garden or neighbourhood. See how many objects you can see that start with the sound 'a'. You might even find some objects that have the 'a' sound in the middle or the end of the word. HAPPY HUNTING!
ACTIVITY 2 - 'a' PICTURE
Draw a picture using objects that start with the 'a' sound. You could have a look in some old magazines for pictures of objects that start with 'a' to make an 'a'college.
ACTIVITY 3 - PRACTISE WRITING 'a'
Practise writing the letter 'a'. Try some of these fun ways to practise writing letter 'a'.
Be as creative as you can...how many ways did you write/make the letter a?
ACTIVITY 4 - ROBOT TALK
Robot talk the words on the cards. Get your adult to robot talk the word first, then repeat after them. Can you hear the 'a' sound in each word. Can you find the 'a' letter in each word? Can you sort the cards into different groups? ie things that move, things that don't move.
