Sound Buttons

This term we are working hard to learn how to draw sound buttons.Β  They can be drawn under a word to make the graphemes clearer.

When a single letter makes a sound on its own a dot is used.


When 2 or more letters work together and are next to each other a straight line is used.



When two letters work together but are separated (like the a and e in snake) a curved like is drawn to link the two letters together.
