Mrs. Thompson's Class Word List
More R-Controlled Vowels
Our Word Work focus this week will be on -er, -ir, and -ur R-controlled vowels. All three combinations make the same sound. They all sound like /er/. When we read, it's easy because we know this sound. But, when we spell, it can be tricky. Try more than one spelling for a word and see "if it looks right"...does it look like it fits into the word family?
