Monster Literacy!


The Sunflowers recently had so much fun with a game we created to support them in learning their letter sounds recognition. We explained how to play the game, the children took turns beautifully and followed instructions brilliantly. We looked at which letter the monster wanted to eat together, the children guessed and told each other letters they recognised. We talked about words that began with that letter, such as ‘c’ for cat, car, carrot, then the children helped eachother find the correct letter from the tray.
What fun we had seeing what the monster did! If the children had the correct letter he said yummy and ate it, if it wasnt he was sick! The children found this hilarious! They enjoyed playing this game for a long time before we moved onto practicing our writing skills. We then went on to chose a monster to colour in and they all did an AMAZING job at forming letters in their own names. They spent such care and time on their colouring in and showed off their work very proudly.
Lots of love,
Everyone at Leighs xxx
