Wave Your Wand – The letter G

19th September 2018 - By 

Download a FREE resource featuring Magic Shapes Handwriting and Story Wizard Phonics resources for the letter ‘g’ by logging in or registering (download link is at the bottom).

Get children to create their own word wand (be as creative as you like) and then use it to trace the magic wand shapes in the air. This is their initial basic training towards creating magic symbols with their wands.

Once familiar with the basic shapes they can have a go at combining those shapes into a complete magic symbol! This magic symbol is the letter ‘g’.

The letter ‘g’ makes a short sound that is made with the mouth relaxed and the tongue pointing upwards towards the top of the mouth.

Word wizards can send their thoughts to other wizards by using symbols like these. One day your children will become word wizards!

The Wave your Wand activity is a fun way to introduce letters. The initial shapes can also be used for fine motor skills activities and resources are included to support this. Resources also include activities for cutting out letters and pasting them onto activity sheets.

These and other activities for the letter ‘g’ (and every other letter of the alphabet) are included in the Story Wizard Phonics scheme for the Early Years Foundation Stage. Magic Shapes Handwriting resources are also available independently in print, cursive and uppercase.

With Story Wizard Phonics, ‘G’ is introduced to children at the end of Set 2. In set 1 children will have learned the letters a,m,t,s,d. In set 2 they will have already learned i,n,o,p. At this stage they will have seen how the letters they have learned can combine into many words including: am, sat, in, pin and pig.

The Story Wizard scheme introduces letters progressively like this to enable children to constantly consolidate their prior learning and to become familiar with combining letters into words and having a go at blending from the very beginning.

In a few days time children can even have a go at creating their first story book!

Teaching Capital Letters and Full Stops

13th September 2018 - By 

The Punctuation Monsters are on hand to help your children to perfect their punctuation skills!

The monsters in this series have a ‘Mermaids and Sea Monsters’ theme and this theme is used throughout the writing challenges. The challenges include fun facts and silly sentences to help stimulate children’s interest. Each sentence has been stripped of punctuation so that students can have a go at rewriting the ‘Unpunctuated’ text with punctuation.

Challenges are provided on individual writing sheets and each sentence is accompanied by a creative task. These include things like drawing a picture based on the sentence and colouring in pictures.

Challenges are available for each of the requirements for the Year 1 curriculum. This includes:

The above modules can be ordered individually and also as a complete set. The complete set also includes a step-by-step explanation of each method of punctuation along with examples and class challenges.

Children can work through the workbooks progressively and build up their understanding and confidence. This is further supported by the Sentence Check sheets that accompany each module. The Sentence Check sheet allows children to check their own writing and to peer check a class mate. The sheets are progressive to ensure that children need only focus on the methods of punctuation that they have been taught up to that point.

Once familiar with the basic shapes they can have a go at combining those shapes into a complete magic symbol! This magic symbol is the letter ‘m’.

With Story Wizard Phonics, ‘M’ is the second letter introduced to children. On day 1 they will have learned ‘a’ (which they learn as both a letter and a word). When they learn the letter ‘m’ they can immediately see how it can be combined with the letter ‘a’ to form the word ‘am’.

Phonics Planning Guide: Story Wizard Phonics

23rd February 2018 - By 

Story Wizard Phonics supports children to become young story writers by:
-using basic shapes to develop fine motor skills and then combining those shapes to form letters (available in both print and cursive)
– creating ‘word wands’ to trace newly learned phonemes in the air
– providing guidance for pronunciation including mouth positions and patterns for short and stretched sounds
– organising phonemes into words (and writing them themselves)
– discussing the meanings and usage of every word they learn (including exception words)

The emphasis is on helping children to understand the shapes, sounds, meanings and usage of the symbols they learn towards becoming word wizards!

Every new phoneme is introduced in the context of a word using only phonemes that have been previously taught. This helps children to continuously consolidate their prior learning while also recognising the relationship between sounds, letters and words.

Children are encouraged to begin writing sentences with words they have learned and can use these to create their first story book.

This planning guide provides an overview of the available resources and how they can be organised across the full academic year including:
– 14 weeks of expected phonemes (including baseline assessments and monitoring)
– 12 weeks of consolidation activities (including further monitoring)
– 10 weeks of advanced phonemes (including additional monitoring)
– Monitoring and assessment including individual and class tracking

Story Wizard Phonics resources are available here.
