This week we will looking at alternative ways of spelling the /air/ phoneme- 'ear' as in bear and 'are' as in care

 

Please practise these words at home with your child:

fair

chair

stairs

bear

wear

tear

pear

dare

stare

share

 

Ideas for other activities:

 

  • If your child is confident with the spelling the words above, they could practise writing them in a sentence.  Perhaps they could challenge themselves to write a sentence with all 3 ways of spelling /air/ in e.g The greedy bear didn't want to share the pear he won at the fair!
  • Ask your child to read the phoneme spotter story (see below), or you could read it to them, and highlight all the words which have the /air/ sound in.  (They may spot that a few words have /air/ spelt 'ere' e.g there)

 

This week's Common exception words are:
Yr 1 CEWs: put, push, pull, full
Yr 2 CEWs: old, cold, hold, told, gold
