Today, we are going to learn a new sound . At phonics time, we learn two 'oo' sounds. Today, we are learning the short 'oo' sound, in words such as, 'book' and 'look'. We have put eyes in the 'oo' sound to remind you that it is the short not the long sound.
Parents: Say this sentence to your child: oo look at a book.
Now, practice saying the new sound together. If you are unsure how to pronounce this sound, watch the short video at the bottom of this page.
Now, can you Fred talk, read the words, with our new short 'oo' sound.
Parents: Ask your child to write the following words in their busy work books.
Boys and girls, remember to use your 'Fred Fingers' to help you.
Words to write: took, look, book, play
As a challenge, read this sentence together with your child lots of times: Pick up the hat.
Now, without looking, can your child write the sentence in their busy work books.
