It seems like forever since we did a sound/letter post. We have been doing lots of word and letter work I have just been keeping it to myself! So here I am sharing our work the sound ‘i’ (short i) makes.
For the sound ‘i’ our activities included:
- Using ‘i’ worksheets in our phonics workbooks. To use them more than once, I take the workbook apart and use a write and wipe pocket.
- Singing about the sound ‘i’ and making ‘i’ actions.
- Playing memory with letters of the alphabet
- Making words with ‘i’ as the vowel.
- After we made the words using letter magnets Daisy wrote the words on the dry wipe sentence strip (I forgot to photograph it)
- We made an igloo using a Styrofoam half sphere and cotton balls.
- Another igloo from sugar cubes. There were more but my husband used them in his coffee!
- An ‘i’ word search. Just be aware that the long and short ‘i’ sounds are used in this word search. As Daisy was finding words we discussed the sound the initial letter was making. This activity was done together as the words are beyond Daisy and the concept of word searching was new.
- ‘i’ movements – as you can see the movements are ice skating, child’s pose for insect and sliding along like an inchworm. Movement Activities A To Z is a great book I have just discovered and I will be telling you more about it in the future.
- Yoga was limited for this sound although we did work on breathing, emphasizing the inhale and exhale.

This is a great way to teach letter sounds especially to kinesthetic learners! Fun too!
It’s got to be fun!
