In the first year of primary school children will learn…creating craft ideas is educational for kids. Easy crafts for kids to check out… phonics, a method of learning real words. Phonics made easy, how I hear you say. Sounds scary, doesn’t it? Don’t be too worried as I know as a parent that other parents use to stress over the word “phonics”. Please be assured that if parents have an idea then it will put the ease on children.
Reading books to children is a great start to help your child develop key literacy skills. Reading together can help your child know sounds to words and grow your child’s imagination. So, how can I help my child learn phonics?
Phonics made easy
Starting children at a young age, learning words at home will help them at school. This will then help prepare children to start learning words.
Remembering at doing crafts with your children engages them into talking and learning at the crafts that they make. Take a look at the monster craft, for instance, this has crazy amounts of learning. I won’t go into too much detail, go and check it out for yourself.
To start children learning, it’s a great idea for them to start learning the phonics alphabet. For you, I have created a FREE Alphabet colouring sheet for your child. All you have to do is download my sheets and then print them off. Really easy!! The bonus of this is that you then have a copy at all times and you can print off as many copies as you like. Children can follow each individual letter, and colour them in. In this pack, I have done an upper and lower case alphabet and included a number page. These colouring sheets have helped my crafty creators so much for school, it has helped them grow confidence at school and at home, and now my crafty creators read well.
If you have any questions regarding this post, or you need further help, please email me and I will be happy to answer them. Maybe you need help with other phonics activities.
