This activity helps your child consolidate their phonemic awareness and phonics knowledge. Have fun with your child swapping sounds from their trolley to create new words. This promotes your child’s ability to manipulate one sound at a time in a word, which lays the foundation for developing efficient reading and spelling skills. Word chains can move from easy to hard depending on the length of the word and which sounds are swapped.

You are encouraged to watch the video below, to both support your understanding of the activity and to see the activity demonstrated by an adult and child.
