Keeping phonics interesting and multisensory is taking quite a lot of brain power on my part!
I was pretty pleased with how this very simple activity held the boys attention.

(add a pinch of sensory exploration...)
... And voila! A novel way to focus on the 'ay' sound in written format.
We got all CRazy with the 'cr' onset. (Ha! Don't groan!) It was a shame the 'cr' cookies were kinda odd as we ran out of butter and substituted with oil, but hey-ho the kids ate them.
At the end of the day I was running out of grand ideas and resorted to a nice simple glitter session to focus on the 'in' sound. Lamb has pretty much got 'in' under his belt (and Moo is just joining in with for the fun of it really) so we didn't need to go over 'in' in too much detail.
