The children found working with letter l easy as expected. They came up with the usual list of words. They mentioned words like lizard, lips, letters, ladder, lunch, leg, laugh, lion, lemon and lollipop.
Besides writing these letters on the interactive whiteboard they recorded the letter in their workbooks. These are the pages they worked.
Success criteria to be able to write letter l –
- You start writing this letter from the top.
- It has to be straight.
- Don’t forget the tail at the end.
The children saw two video clips:

During the week we had two blending sessions. In the first session we blended words starting with letter l along with other cvc words. The children used their small laminated flashcards to go through the blending steps. (See previous literacy blogs for the steps).
Some of these words were also in the page we worked out together.
In a separate session we all blended words like cat, fat, sat, mat, hat, bat and rat. Here are the photos taken during this session.
