v - revving engine

Phase Three - j

The activities and games in this blog post can be adapted and used with any sound that your child is learning. Phase 3 sounds and words can be found on the sounds page.


The v sound sound can be a bit tricky to say. Introduce it by modelling how to make the sound. Gently place your teeth on your lower lip and breath out as you use your voice to make the v. You should feel vibrations on your lower lip when making the sound. You can get your child to look in a mirror or use the selfie camera on your phone so they can watch themselves do it.


Practise making the v sound by getting them to drive a toy van or car around and rev the engine, saying "vvvv, vvvv, vvvv". Alternatively you could get the to pretend to use a steering wheel with their hands as they make the sound.


Reading:

Place some sound cards on the floor and drive the van past the sounds. As the toy van passes each card say the sound. Drive the car past again but this time blend the sounds to read the word.


Words to use: van, vet, vat, Vic, visit.



Spelling:

Spread the sound cards out on the floor or a car mat. Say a word and ask your child to repeat it. Can they drive the car to collect the first sound they need. Sound it out again to find the next sound and repeat until they have found all of the sounds to make the word.


Sound cards: use v, a, n, e, t, i to make van, vet, vat, Vic.
