If you don’t have a printer at home to print out these phonics activities, then don’t worry! They can all be adapted to be completed in a different way!

For example: creating your own snakes and ladders game, or writing the words out on pieces of paper and see how quickly you can read them. You could turn it into a game by asking someone to hide the words around the house and you could go on a word hunt.

You could also write the words or sentences in your purple writing books or on paper and then draw the matching picture next to it.
