Classroom Ideas

This clip could be used to develop phonological awareness and phonics in order to hear and identify the letter 'y' in words. Play the clip without the visuals and ask children to listen closely for the most common sound. Once this is identified as 'y', hold up a 'y' card when they hear the letter. Watch the clip and get the children to give a 'thumbs up' when the sound is heard. Can the children find or think of any other words with 'y' in? Children could investigate where the 'y' usually occurs - beginning, middle or end? How many of the words are names?
