Learning focus: Silly Sentences
Choose a ‘focus phoneme’ (a sound that you want to focus on). Collect as many words as you can that contain this phoneme. Write each on a square of paper or a sticky note. Have fun moving the different words around to create silly sentences. For example:
chair, chopped, chimp, chose, chores, cheeky, chatting
A cheeky chimp chose chopping chairs instead of chores and chatting.
Challenge: Can you substitute new words into your silly sentence? What is the shortest/longest/funniest/silliest sentence you can make?
Challenge: Try a new phoneme each day. Which phoneme is the easiest/trickiest/silliest? Can you create a sentence where every word contains your focus phoneme?
