1. Valentine’s Day clip the syllables
To prepare this activity for use, print the cards, laminate them and then cut them apart. Household pegs, or other small clipping items such as unused hair clips or paper clips, can be used for this activity. The aim is for children to identify the number of syllables in each word and clip the circle with the correct answer.
2. Valentine’s Day clip the beginning sound (beginning digraphs: ch, th, sh)
Print, laminate and cut out the picture cards. The aim of this activity is for children to correctly identify the beginning sound of each picture and to clip a clothes peg to show their answer. Alternatively, children can use dry-erase markers to color the correct beginning sound.

They spin the paper clip and pencil spinner on the frog spinning card and read the word where it stops. Children then find a matching rhyming picture and place it under the pink card it rhymes with. This continues until all the cards have been used up.
