Using kinaesthetic methods to support phonics

Last week in The Learning Den we were looking at the "ou" sound and how it can be made two ways :- 
1. ow as in cow          
2. ou as in out

To help us remember some of the words with these patterns we made models using plasticine. We used a card with a picture on, such as a snake then we chose a word from the ou/ow box such as ground and used both of these words to make a sentence. Then we made a model to help us keep a picture in our heads that went with our ou/ow words. It was great fun!

Here are some photos of our fabulous models. Can you spot the ou/ow words?
