Learn to write the letter d

Watch the video above showing how to correctly form the letter d. Use your magic finger to write the d letter in the air, on the table and on the palm of your hand. Can you have a go at writing it in your exercise book?


Now we would like you to have a go at using your robot arms to orally segment some words. Your grown up will tell you the words that you are going to super segment and brilliant blend. Remember to segment and say each sound before blending the whole word, e.g. p-a-n pan. If you want you can write the words in your exercise book as well; the skill we want you to focus on the most though is being able to orally segment a cvc word.


Please ask your child to segment the sounds in the following words:

  • dip
  • sad
  • din
  • mad
  • pad
