Can an adult write the letters of the alphabet. Can you look and say each sound?
Ask your adult to give you an object/picture of a CV or CVC word. Can you find the beginning sound? Can you find the end sound? Can you write the whole word? How many can you do?
If you are not on letter sounds yet, can you match objects? Match like pictures or real objects, can you match small cup to small cup and big cup to big cup?
CV examples: bow, no, hay, tie, boo, bye, bee day, my
CVC examples: cat, car, pen, pig, fat, fun, ship, dig, Sam
Each child is at a different level so work your way through the tasks and see where they are!
Set up your own bear hunt by hiding teddy bears around your house/garden. Ask the children to describe where they could look and where each bear was found. You could extend this into everyday practice by having a bear which "hides" in a different place in the house/garden every night for the children to find.
