Geraldine the Giraffe learns the /sh/ sound

Now play ‘Sound hunt’.  Ask an adult to write the sound ‘qu’ on a piece of paper.  On another to write ‘ck’.  On another piece of paper ‘ch’ and another with today’s sound ‘sh’.  Ask your adult to place these around a room, your whole home or outside.  Don’t look at where they are placing them!  Then go on a hunt, looking for the sounds (like hide and seek).  Once you find a sound tell your adult what sound it is and show them the action for it.  Can you have a go at writing the sound? Can you try to read or write a word containing the sound you find? So if you found the ‘ch’ sound, your adult could then write a word containing ‘ch’ (with sound buttons) and you could have a go at reading them.  Or if you wanted, you could have a go at writing the word yourself!


Here are some suggested words for this game-

qu: quest

ck: sick, pack

ch: chip, chin

sh: rush, bash
