Mrs Loxton & Mrs R-P's Groups

Today we will move on to look at alternative pronunciations of the ou grapheme.  Before we do that go through all the graphemes from phase 5 with the game below.

Can you read these ou words.  What sound is ou making?

loud   sound   you   soup

group   shoulder   could


It's a tricky one today as ou can make four different sounds. 

In loud and sound it makes an ow sound like in cow.  In you and soup it makes an oo sound like in boot.  In shoulder it makes an oa sound.  In could it makes a short oo sound like in book.


Now play Acorn Adventures and try sorting the ou words.

If you have a printer you could play this game to reinforce reading ou words.
