Put the words on the table and try to build a sentence with your child. Make silly sentences that keep the kids interested in the activity. Use your child’s name in a sentence as it keeps them more involved.

Child Daycare Dubai is a great place to involve the kids in learning through playful activities. The kids find it interesting to make letters from the play dough or you can get letters or word stamps. When the kids make words with the play dough, it will register in their memory and it can be retrieved while reading a book.

  1. Clothes clip activity:

Write the twenty-six alphabets on the clothes clip and collect the basic pictures. Ask the kid to see the picture and write its spelling. For instance, bat, car, man, sad, fat. Your child can spell these basic words after seeing the picture.

  1. Blending activity:

Blending activity teaches the kids to push the sound of alphabets together to build a word. You can do this activity at home by throwing random sentences on kids and ask them what the first sound is in the beginning word. For instance, the ball is blue. Emphasize on the beginning alphabet so that the child can easily grasp the letter and get involved in the activity then move to the middle and the last letter. Focus on three to four letter words initially. Man, mad, fat, map, hop, etc can be used initially to keep the blending easy for kids.

  1. Oral activity:

Oral activity is pivotal for the beginning readers so that they can be able to hear the sound and construct a word.  Play a game with the children and give instructions using the sound of the words. For instance, s-i-t on the m-a-t. Focus on the letters so that the kids will be able to construct the word easily.

  1. Picture and word matching:

Have word cards with the matching pictures that depict those words. Ask the child to identify the word by hearing the beginning word sound and then select the picture that best explain the word.
