I’d love this editable so that I write morning work into the weekday boxes.

Hi Imogen. While it’s possible customise this resource by adding your students’ names to the template, we are unable to make a fully customisable Word version of the resource due to the number of school fonts involved. Our apologies for the inconvenience. We are always open to our members’ suggestions and will continue to create fully customisable resources wherever possible.

These are great! I agree cursive would be better. Also consistent with the sounds. Keep it to the short vowel sounds for picture icons.

This is lovely – however the image for the letter “i” should be an igloo or something with the short “i” sound rather than the long sound in ice cream… Just becomes a bit confusing for little ones… Thanks

Could it be cursive? Not just pre-cursive? Thanks

Could this be made as an editable version – so we can type names into the middle box.
Thanks 🙂
