Today we are looking at the split digraph o-e
Click on the "Fly with Phonics" picture below to join in with the lesson.
Let's get moving around! Play a treasure hunt game around your home and garden to practice the o-e split digraph.
1. On different pieces of paper, card (or like in the picture below) on paper plates, write down the following: rop, mop, not, brok, ston, hop, hos, glob, ros, froz. Example pictures below.
2. Ask a grown up to hide these around your home. No peeking!
3. From paper, card, or a paper plate, make your 'rainbow e' from the split digraph o-e. You could use paper from your work book if you need to. Example picture below.
4. Take your 'rainbow e' around your home with you to find the words your grown up hid earlier for you.
When you find one, sound out the word. Is it real or nonsense without your e from the split digraph? e.g is ros real or nonsense? is brok real or nonsense?
5. Now put your 'rainbow e' from the split digraph next to the word you have found. What does the word say now? Can you tell a grown up what you think the word means? Example pictures below,
