Words to read:
Was your child able to blend the four daily words today? Encourage your child to use their ‘phoneme fingers’ to help them when reading words.
A phoneme is a unit of sound. So when sounding out words with digraphs/trigraphs those 2/3 letters is one unit of sound. For example; chip is sounded out as ch/i/p – using 3 fingers.
