Phase One: Voice Sounds
Purpose: Practising mouth movements helps children to articulate. This will make it easier for them to make the sounds clearly when they sound out words later on.
I have added an IGTV video to my IG account for this activity. You don't need any resources to join in.
If you want to play at home, show your child how to make different sounds with their voices.
Make their voice go down a slide - wheee!
Make their voice bounce like a ball - boing, boing!
Sound really disappointed - oh
Hiss like a snake - ssssss
Keep everyone quiet - shshshshshsh
Gently moo like a cow - mmmmooooooo
Be like a steam train - chchchchch!
Buzz like a bumble bee - zzzzzzzz
Be a clock - tick tock
What other sounds do they think they can make with their voices?
