This week the children will be recapping blending and segmenting sh, qu, ai and ar.
We teach children to read by blending sounds and write by segmenting sounds.
Blending means combining sounds to make a word. Divide the word into the individual sounds. For example /s/ /i/ /t/
Segmenting means using knowledge of sounds to break it down to /p/ /i/ /n/ in order to write the word.
Below are some high frequency words and tricky words which children are to learn to read onsight
