Modelled

  1. Revise what students have learnt/remembered so far about letters - i.e. they are a symbol for the smallest sound, each letter has a unique sound and a unique shape, when they come together in a specific way they create words etc.

  2. Read to your class the story ‘Chicka Chicka Boom Boom’ by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault, or another alphabet story of your choice.
