Phonics - Past and Present
Starter - please use the following link - Flashcards Speed Trials (phonicsplay.co.uk) and see how quickly you can read all of the flashcards. Play a couple of times and see if you can get quicker each time.
Activity - remind your adult or a sibling what past and present tense means. Can you give them some examples of past tense words and then present tense words.
Today, with an adult or sibling, I would like you to play noughts and crosses. Create a noughts and crosses grid (I have attached an example below) with a range of past and present words. When playing
- Choose a square
- Read the word in the square
- Change it into past or present If the word in the square is eat you would say " eat and ate"
- If you get it correct you can either draw your nought or your cross
Once you have completed one game, complete another grid and play again :)
Apply - Randomly choose some of the words from your noughts and crosses board and verbally place them into a sentence. Then change the sentence to either past or present.
eg Joe is happily eating a cheese sandwich - Joe happily ate a cheese sandwich
