Lesson Thirteen: Silent ‘t’ as in whistle and listen and often:
Pages 27 – 29:
Page 27 No 3: knowing the meaning of a word gives the child more confidence to use it in future when speaking and writing.
Page 27 No 4: Discuss the silent t to be found in each word.
Looking at/studying each word helps to consolidate the recognition and spelling of the word for future recall.
Pages 28 – 29: encourage neat work and accurate cutting out. At this stage of a child’s development fine motor skills should be developed well enough to produce (with effort) accurate cutting out.
Give the children time to use their imaginations to the full.
I’m sure you’ll be surprised at the results.

Page 30 ;
Looking again at the same words consolidates the knowledge gained from the previous lesson.
Putting the words into a graph integrates the activity into the Maths Learning Area.
Putting words into sentences:
• gives the child practise at using the words in writing.
We study words not only so the child can confidently read them but so he/she can also use them while speaking and writing.
• gives the child important practise at writing a sentence with the correct punctuation.
• gives the child practise at ordering her/his thoughts. This is a pre-requisite skill for successful writing.
