As I have been working with 4 year olds, just starting school, over the past few weeks, these are the letters they have to learn first.
And whenever I see it written down I feel it ought to be another hospital drama [to be repeated endlessly on ITV 3] But these letters are so incredibly useful, it is amazing how many words you can make from them [despite the fact that there isn’t a magic ‘e’ there]
I am sad, and in I’m pain. Satpin MD is in Spain.
Pat sat in paint! Pat did stain Tim’s satin pants.
Did Tim mind? Mmm! [Tim said “Stand, damn imp”]
A panda in a sandpit, ant in pants.
Mad Dad’s mint is damp. Mimi spat at dim man.
Instant antipasti dip? Add passata in a mini tin.
Sid is in India, I’m in Panama
Satpin MD said I’d nip past Sid’s pinata.
Pianist taps a minim, Ada spins and stamps
spit and stamina
Maybe Satpin MD trained at the same hospital as that other children’s wordsmith, Dr Seuss?
