Tricky Words

Saturday 19 November 2011

This week, your child will start to bring some ‘Tricky Words’ home to learn. These are words that have have unusual or untaught phonemes and are ‘tricky’ to decode. Show your child the word and try to blend it as usual, discussing the letters that are ‘tricky’. For example, in the word ‘go’ the last letter does not represent the same sound as in the word dog. Keep looking at the words, use them in a sentence and point them out in their reading book. This week, the tricky words are ‘the‘ and ‘to‘.
