Alphablocks Kiss or Miss game
To play, help your child cut out the lips on the page, then ask them to shut their eyes and have a go at placing the lips on the 'ss'. Will they kiss... or will they miss?
Where they land will determine how many points they get, so make sure they remember to count up their score at the end.
As they play, point out that 's' and 'ss' make the same sound. You could also award bonus points for every word your child can think of with 'ss' – some other examples could be 'mess', 'pass', 'boss', 'fuss', or 'grass'.
We've also created these free phonics worksheets to give little ones more practice with the 'ss' sound. Or you can watch the Alphablocks episode 'Hill' to learn about other consonant digraphs, like 'ff' and 'll'.
For even more fun with phonics, check out the Alphablocks Reading Programme too – inside you'll find six magazines, letter tiles, stickers, and stars, all of which are designed to help your child learn to read!
