Onset and Rime with the 'ot' sound - You might like to begin using magnetic letters (or make little letter cards) to spell _ot words before you complete the worksheet or if you are unable to print it out. Remember to listen carefully for each sound and find the letter you need.
For this activity there are 3 'Spicy' levels to choose from when it comes to completing the worksheet.
Spicy level mild - find the initial sound for each word
Spicy level hot - sound out the whole word
Spicy level extra hot - sound out the whole word and write the word
Choose the worksheet your child feels comfortable working at or for an extra challenge move up a 'Spicy' level!!

Use the Part- Whole model to explore the numbers 1-10. Don't worry if you can't print it out you can draw it onto a page. You can use any small objects to do this activity. Just make sure they are the same e.g pasta, lego, buttons, counters, play figures
Example- Count a set of 5 objects into the 'whole' section of the diagram. Now separate the objects into the 'parts' sections of the diagram. The whole number has now been 'split into 2 parts'.
How many pieces are in each part?
Can you find another way to split up the whole number?
How may different ways can you do it?
Can you write down what you found out
e.g 5 is the same as 0 and 5
1 and 4
2 and 3
