Welcome to my posts for the A to Z Challenge 2016.
This year, I am posting
Special School Stories
tales from either my time as a teacher or teaching assistant within classrooms in the U.K. or from my own school days growing up around the country.
The letter I dread each A - Z Challenge!! So for today's post you can have a peep into the phonics lesson as we try to teach children the complexities of this letter which everyone knows but not everyone can say!!!
X is the name of this letter
Let’s say box and let’s say fix
Hear the sound at the end?
Now that’s the sound of X
At the end of the word
Like Max or fox
Put your arms like this
(crossed in front of your body)
You’ve got the X factor
Say the sound – ks!
I'd love to know what you think of phonics lessons in school now - did you get taught to read phonetically or with flashcards? Do your children come back doing or singing their phonics lessons? Which is your least favourite letter and why? Go on - leave a comment below - you know I'd love to know :)
