If you can, practise reading these set of real and 'nonsense' words with your child. Get the child to use their sounds to sound and blend the unfamiliar nonsense words and unfamiliar real words. If you can, practise these regularly so your child can develop their decoding skills and recall of known graphemes. At the end of the 40 words, go through the ones that the children may have sounded incorrectly and try again tomorrow. It's all good practise! You could even take it in turns to read one word at a time!
Challenge: Can your child read all 40 words correctly in under 2 minutes? Can your child read the word instantly if you mix the words up and point at a word at random?

We would love to see which phonemes you have been conquering!
