Phase 1 - Mouth Movements

Updated: May 11

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?

If you have a go at this activity and share any photos or videos on social media I would love to see them. Please tag @miniwritersclub and use #miniwritersclub and let me know how you get on.
