Talkie Time - magic thumbs
An interactive sketch encouraging children to join in. Presenter Rodd is dressed up as a Magician and is attempting a magic trick. He has to sound out the magic word to make the object appear but it isn't working. Instead he decides to show the children his magic thumbs which make two new sounds around a middle letter.
Get the children to trace around the shape of the thumbs to reveal the two letters and sound them out. Pause and choose some new middle sounds. Get the children to make the magic thumbs with Rodd and sound out the new word. Sound out the magic word again to help Rodd complete his magic trick.
