The methodology «Synthetic phonics”, has a main goal which is to teach the sounds of the English language and then teach children to combine the taught sounds to say words. This way, we help the kids give the words meaning and functionality while learning this language from an early age.
This week we are working with the sound «D / d» as in d for «daddy», «day», «dog» or «drum», among others. In this session, we listened carefully to the song that belongs to the sound, and then repeating it a second time, making the gesture which represents that letter; both in a big group and individually. Later, we write words with that sound on the board and we review the sound “D/d” in groups with plasticine and pens.
