Writing Letter ‘s’ Phonics sounds for Kids Phase 1

How to write the letter ‘s’? Writing the alphabet letters is done through following a specific method that is related to every single one of them. In this lesson, we are teaching the kids to write down the letter ‘s’ which is done like “moving around the snake head and down to its tail” in the air.

In jolly phonics, the letter ‘s’ brings out the same sound that is brought from the snake and that’s why kids usually make the shape of the movement snake while they are learning to spell and write the letter ‘s’.

Writing the English alphabet letters is not a hard lesson for the kids to learn, but parents and teachers should always choose the correct method through which they are going to deliver the lesson, the more exciting and challenging it is for the kids, the better and easier it would be for them to learn.

The tools needed in this lesson to educate the kids to write down the letter ‘s’ include one paint color, an earbud or a coloring brush, and the paper on which all these tools will be used. It should all start with the parent writing down the letter ‘n’ several times on the paper in order for the kid to trace it later. Before the kid start tracing the letter down, he/she should first identify the letter on the paper and say its name, make the phonetic sound it should make, and then eventually start writing the letter down.

What is phonics? A lot of kids ask this question when they come to the part of learning it. Phonics are those sounds that the letters of the English alphabet tend to make. Although this goes with most of the alphabet letters, there are some letters out there that do not follow a phonetic pattern and these are referred to as tricky words.

According to jolly phonics, kids might sometimes learn the sounds of English alphabet letters before they come to the point of learning how these letters should be written down, but usually when the kids learn to write these letters, they are aware of the different sounds that each one of them could produce.

Helping the child in learning the alphabet letters and making it easier step by step is important. At the beginning, teach your child to trace the letter with the dots that you are going to make, and then let the kid write down the letter all on his/her own. If it was still difficult for the child to write down the letter, the parent could then start the letter and leave the child to complete it and once they master it all, it could all move a little step forward with just making the starting point and leaving the child to complete the rest of the letter.

Making it a bit challenging for the child is always important and more interesting for them, you will even realize that they are responding to the whole lesson more. If the child is making mistakes or learning slowly, never worry about anything because it all comes with practice and that’s why it is important to write the same letter several times for them so that they could trace it more than ones.

We have different lessons on our channel that teach the child to write down the English alphabet letters. In addition to the letter ‘s’, there is also the letter ‘a’, the letter ‘n’, the letter ‘L’, the letter ‘e’, the letter ‘ t’ and lots of other games and activities which the kids could depend on in order to write down the letters correctly and at the same time learn to spell them phonetically right.
