For older 3s and young 4s
Activity #1: Onset and Rime
The "onset" is the initial phonological unit of any word (e.g. ‘c’ in cat) and the term "rime" refers to the string of letters that follow, usually a vowel and final consonants (e.g. ‘at’ in cat). This stage usually develops after syllable awareness and before phoneme awareness and is considered a crucial aspect of reading development.
Watch the video below together with your child to help you in supporting them with our onset and rime activity.
