Synthetic phonics activities to encourage autonomous learning

Over the last few days we have covered many aspects of teaching synthetic phonics to children learning English as a second  or foreign language. We have practiced the sounds, learnt the actions, discovered how to teach blending and segmenting and talked about introducing tricky words, letter names and alternative spellings. Today we began the session by trying out some activities that can be used as work stations or, (as we call them in Spain) corner-time activities that encourage our pupils to practice phonics independently. Take a look at the photos to see the activities and let us know if you try using any of them in your class.
