- Fun, interesting and appealing….each sound ‘blend’ is shaped as a vehicle board. There are as many as 10 chucky vehicle boards. In the driver’s seat of each vehicle is a child who is displaying the word sounds in the form of a banner of the word blend or digraph.These are the blends – gr, cr, fl, bl, tr, dr, pl and the digraphs – ch, wh, sh.
- For each sound corresponding to the vehicle the child will practice pronouncing all the words – some of which may be new to the child. By regular play the child would have become accustomed to the spelling and can associate the same with the sound. With some children, whose word vocabulary is good – they can extend the learning with more play possibilities
- Sound and Spell can also be played as a memory game by following the instructions in the manual. By doing so, they recall the spellings of these words much better.
Teaching a child how to spell can be quite an uphill task and doing so in a fun and playful manner is the challenge. Using phonetics, the child’s spelling memory is enhanced. In this puzzle forty words are shown in pictures made by matched jigsaw puzzle pairs.
There are 10 large vehicle cut- outs which have 4 empty slots for these pictures. In the driver’s seat a child displays the word sounds as a blend (2 consonants combined and 2 sounds are heard – gr, cr, fl, bl, tr, dr, pl) or digraph (2 consonants are combined and 1 sound is heard – ch, wh, sh).
The Puzzle Activity involves the child recognising the speech sound for each vehicle and then trying to form pictures with a pair of jigsaw pieces.
The four pictures for each word sound are then inserted in the appropriate vehicles in the empty slots.
With regular play the child would have become accustomed to the spelling and can associate the same with the sound. Children can extend the learning with more play possibilities by forming more words or play a memory game whose rules are simple to follow.
