Today, we are going to practice the short 'oo' sound. Remember, at phonics time, we learn two 'oo' sounds. Today, we are learning the '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 practice reading these sounds.
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: shook, cook, foot, high
As a challenge, read this sentence together with your child lots of times: I had a pink hat.
Now, without looking, can your child write the sentence in their busy work books.
To finish, read one of the red ditty books to your grown-ups. Click on the link below.
