You can do an assessment with the help of a child psychologist to rule out any learning difficulties. Meanwhile you could try out these: To make him interested in writing, place any of these : a board/ chart/colour paper/ colour pens. Sit beside him and you do some writing task so that he will copy your behaviour. When he completes studying or writing give him a sticker. When he gets 7 stickers give him a reward. To teach phonics: 1. Use flash cards. Keep repeating the letters and sounds. 2.To build sound letter matches, have your child sort pictures cards according to their beginning sounds. Select picture cards that begin with the 3 initial consonant sounds that are very different such as: /b/, /s/, & /t/. Review the cards before you have your child sort them: bear, triangle, smile, spoon, sunflower, spinner, sign, train, tree If your child needs support ask, “What is the first sound you hear in the word bear? What letter makes the /b/ sound? Is it the letter b, s, or t? Then have your child sort the pictures according to their ending sounds. Activities of increasing difficulty include sorting pictures according to their medial sound represented by their vowel pattern: /e/: seal, peas, read, team, wheel; /o/: boat, coat, toad, road OR according to their beginning digraphs: cards: chair, cherries, shoe, sheep, thread, three, wheat, whiskers. 3. Play jumbled words. 4. Use puzzles. 5. Read out a lot All the best and do keep us posted.
