Initial sound 'tr' - Lesson 5 page 1 - Phonic Pack 2.

My name is .
Read ‘ck’ words from Lesson Four
Lesson Five (initial blend – tr)

Note to tutor: Lessons Five, Six and Seven will be introducing initial blends. When sounding a word out the first two letters are blended together. This makes it easier to ‘hear’ the word.
For instance, take the word ‘trip’. It will not be sounded out t-r-i-p, but tr –i-p. The ‘tr’ are blended together when first sounding out the word.
The lessons now are also giving your child practise at writing the words as well as reading them. Reading, writing and spelling can be successfully integrated in this way.

Before you read the story look at the picture and ask your child
where he/she thinks the truck is going. Accept and discuss all
ideas. Then say,
“Now we will read and find out where the truck is going.”

1. Ask your child to follow along as you read this story.
This gives the sense of the story and encourages fluency and expression. Point to each word as you read. This means your child can follow along with you, it is encouraging the left to right eye movement and you will be modelling fluent reading. It is good if your child recognises some of the words.

One day a truck carrying a horse went on a trip to a circus. On the way it had to stop by a tram track to let a tram go by. At the circus the horse will trot around the circus ring while a clown does a trick on its back.

The Mail Train

One day a train set off to take the mail to the town.

It sang as it chuffed along the rails,

“I can see a sheep. I can see a tree.

I can see a chick. I am free, free, free !!!”

Then it started to rain.

The train said as it chuffed along,

“This is sad. This is bad.

My paint will get wet. THIS IS BAD, BAD, BAD !!!”

“Wait under the tree,” said a snail to the train. “Then you will

not get wet and your paint will not stain.”

That is what the train did and just as well - it started to hail.

Revision: 'e', 'y', 'ee', 'ea' - Lesson 12 - page 4 - Phonic Pack 3.

Note: You have learnt that to change a word from singular (one) to plural (more than one) you can add an ‘s’. Like ‘scone’ changes to ‘scones’.
Today we learn two more rules for changing a word from singular to plural.
1. To change some words from singular to plural ‘es’ is added to the word. Like ‘peach’ changes to peaches.
2. Words that end with a ‘y’ have a rule of their own.
The rule is: Take away the ‘y’ and add ‘ies’.

Note to tutor: You say “take away the ‘y’ (why) and add ‘i’ (eye), ‘e’ (ee),
‘s’ (es)”


3. We see this rule today in the words:
cherry changes to cherries
lolly changes to lollies

Note to tutor: Explain the new ‘plural rules’ to your child but do not expect your him/her to remember them. Your child will remember as much as he/she understands and you can build on this knowledge by revising the rules every time they appear in a text. Like quotation (speech) marks they will need to be revised several times before your child will be confident with them. For now it is good that your child realises there are more ways of changing words from singular to plural than adding an ‘s’.


4. Go back to the story on page 23 and read the words Teddy said. Read them aloud to your tutor. Trace over the speech marks at the beginning and end of what he said.

Remember: When you are writing a story and someone or something speaks, what they say goes in speech marks.

The Snails in a Cave

One hot day two snails crept along a trail to reach a cave.

“We will be safe and cool in this cave,” said Snail One.

“We can play all day in the shade,” said Snail Two.

They played a game called “Chase my Tail”.

It was so much fun they forgot what the time was and they had

to hurry all the way home (as fast as a snail can hurry).

“Sorry we are late,” they said to Mum as they came into the

flower pot where they lived.
“I have made a Leaf Cake for tea,” said Mum. “Come and eat

it.”

That is just what they did.

‘a-e’ as in cake and ‘ay’ as in tray. Read each word as you underline it. Listen for the ‘ay’ sound in the word.

Word Alert: Listen to the word ‘they’. It is a special word because it has ‘ey’ saying ‘ay’. So underline this special word too.

3. After you have underlined all the words write them in the correct column below.

5. Glue this page into your scrap book.
Note to tutor: Go back to the story “The Snails in a Cave”. Here is another chance to talk with your child about the quotation (speech) marks. The quotation marks occur at the beginning and end of what is actually said.
The more times you get your child to observe this the sooner she/he will be able to use quotation marks correctly in her/his writing.

The Yellow and Brown Owl

The yellow and brown owl liked to sit on the high tower.

From the high tower she could see a mob of brown cows in the paddock below.

The owl could see the beautiful yellow sun-flowers. She had watched them grow after the farmer had planted them in rows.

Then she looked down and saw a crowd in the main street of the town.
“I know they are looking at a street show,” she said to herself.

The yellow and brown owl liked sitting on the high tower.
She could see everything.

Lesson Twenty Three: ‘or’ as in fork and ‘aw’ as in paw
Revision: Read pages 11 and 38.

Note to tutor:
The story about “The Horse and the Dog” is a long story.
1. Let your child read it through first with minimal help from you (see 3 below).
2. Closely supervise your child when she/he underlines the words. Check that she/he is only underlining words where the ‘or’ does say ‘or’ as in fork.
For example you would not underline the words ‘world’ or ‘worked’ because the ‘or’ in these words does not say ‘or’ as in fork.

Working with this story does more than revise the ‘or’ and ‘aw’ sounds.
1. There is a lot of repetition in the story. Children like the rhythm and confidence of repetition, and it also gives the child the chance to add the repeated words to his/her reading vocabulary. Words such as world, asked, where, why, they, whispered and friends are words which should be easily recognised by your child by the end of this story.
2. To keep the repetition interesting and to make sure your child is reading and not just repeating, three of the words are changed in each repetition.
3. It gives your child practise at sounding out words using some of the other digraphs and phonics she/he has been learning. This practise is invaluable because your child is learning the sounds in isolation so she/he can easily recognise them and read words which are made up with the sounds. (This is why it is SO important for your child to read extra books.) If your child does not easily recognise a digraph (or other sound) in a word eg farm, cover the ‘f’ and ‘m’ with your fingers and say, “What does ‘a-r’ together say?” Find it on the flash card if you have to. Then get your child to sound the word out, f-ar-m, farm. This may take time but it is time well spent. It is more beneficial for your child than telling him/her the word without any effort from him/her. If a word cannot be sounded out (a sight word), encourage your child to ‘guess’ what the word may be by looking at the sound it begins with and using the sense of the sentence and story.
4. Another exercise is to look at the speech marks. This has been suggested often during the course of these lessons and your child may be becoming proficient at where the speech marks should go.
5. After you and your child have been through the story encourage your child to read it as fluently as possible. The idea is to read fluently enough to be able to understand the story. This is why we read - to be informed and entertained.
6. Now would be a good time to look at the title of the story and point out that all the words have capital letters, except some small

words like ‘and’ and ‘the’. Go back to the stories on page 22, “A Boy Called Roy”, page 32,”The Big Green Gum Tree” and page 34 “The Yellow and Brown Owl” and look at the titles of these stories. Look at the titles on some story books and see how they are written.

You may find it beneficial to take more than one lesson to complete all of the activities with this story. It is important to cover all the points and to work at a comfortable pace for your child. You may take two, three or four days, as long as your child understands what he/she is doing as you go. Stay patient, helpful and positive. Give lots of encouragement and praise.  

The Horse and the Dog

Mr Shaw was a farmer.

He worked hard all day and one night he was very tired.
“I am so tired I am going to bed now,” he yawned.
He crawled into bed … and forgot to shut the gate.

“Mr Shaw has not shut the gate,” whispered the horse to the dog. “Let’s go for a walk in the morning.”

At dawn, the horse and the dog crept over the lawn, passed the porch and out of the farm gate.

“Which way will we go, left or right?” asked the dog.

“Let’s go right,” said the horse.

So off they went to see the world.

A hawk, who was sitting in the forked branch of a tree, saw them.
“Where are you going?” he asked.
“To see the world,” said the horse.
“Can I come with you?” asked the hawk.
“Why not,” said the two friends.
So off they went to see the world.

A cow, with one horn missing, saw them.
“Where are you going?” she asked.
“To see the world,” said the dog.
“Can I come with you?” asked the cow.
“Why not,” said the three friends.
So off they went to see the world.

A white rabbit, who had been sleeping under a thorn bush, saw them.
“Where are you going?” he asked.
“To see the world,” said the hawk.
“Can I come with you?” asked the rabbit.
“Why not,” said the four friends.
So off they went to see the world.

A little fawn, who was munching on straw, saw them.
“Where are you going?” she asked.
“To see the world,” said the rabbit.
“Can I come with you?” asked the fawn.
“Why not,” said the five friends.
So off they went to see the world.


The friends talked and walked all day.
They looked at the green grass on the hills.
They looked at the wild flowers in the bush.
They had a drink at the river.
They saw lots of other animals and birds.

“The world is a beautiful place, but I am tired now,” said the horse.
They all agreed it was time to go home.

No-one knew the way.

They were lost and it was nearly time for the sun to set.

The farmer, who had been looking for his horse and dog all day, saw them.
“Where are you going?” he asked.
“We have been to see the world,” said the horse.
“It is beautiful, but please take us home,” said the dog.

The farmer smiled and led the way, back passed the river, the wildflowers and the grass.

The little fawn curled up next to her Mother and went to sleep. (zz zz zz)

The rabbit crawled underneath his thorn bush and went to sleep.(zz zz zz)

The cow was pleased to be home again. “Thanks for taking me to see the world,” she said sleepily, as she settled down for a good night’s sleep. (zz zz zz)

The hawk flew to the forked branch in his tree, put his head under his wing and went to sleep.(zz zz zz)

The horse and the dog were very tired by the time they got home. The kind farmer gave them some tea but before they could eat it all they were fast asleep.

The farmer smiled. He was pleased he had found his missing animals …………. and …

he never forgot to shut the gate again.

2. Read the following story and help me finish it.

Note to tutor: Read through the story with your child, letting her/him read as much as she/he can without help. You may need to prompt new look-say words but don’t be in too big a hurry to help because you will be surprised what your child can read by looking at the sound the word begins with, using the sense of the story and the picture clues. Give your child time to sound out words. She/he may need to be prompted and helped with some of the digraphs and sounds already covered. Show your child the digraph or sound in the word. If your child cannot tell you the sound ask her/him to find the appropriate flash card, say the sound and then go back to the problem word. It is good for your child to work in this way. She/he will learn quicker and remember better if she/he has to think the problem through. Be patient and cheerful . Take as much time as your child needs. You may need to take two or three lessons to work through the story. Moving slowly and thoroughly will reap huge rewards in the end.
