Phonics Vocabulary Builder
Developing children’s spoken vocabulary & grammar
Children cannot effectively learn phonics unless they can draw upon their understanding of spoken language.
This resource includes multiple activities to prompt sentences and short story ideas to help children develop their spoken vocabulary and grammar.
Direct speech from an adult to a child is the most effective method of helping a child develop their spoken language skills. The activities in this resource are based on interaction between adults and children to facilitate direct speech with children.
These activities are particularly valuable as children begin to learn phonics and are equally useful at school and at home.
Featured words include high frequency words taught at the Foundation Stage and words featuring phonemes at the beginning stages of phonics programmes.
