My curriculum pictures Bossy r as a cowboy who lassos the vowels just before him and makes them sound as he wants them to sound.
I don't have pictures.

Pirates

We use pirates as our lead-in to the 'ar' sound. They make eye patch and pirate hats and WEAR them around. Ya gotta be 6 to do that. I tell my kids that 'r' is very jealous of the vowels so he goes to the gym and works out like crazy so he can be strong enough to take them on. The first vowel he runs into is 'a' and he take over total control. The next vowel is 'o' but he's not feeling quite as strong. He shares the 'or' sound. Along come 'e', 'i', and 'u'. Together they stand up to 'r' and agree to all make the same sound.

My 2 cents....

For years I taught my students "bossy r". One day I asked myself why? Why can't we call it what it is? We don't have to have cutesy stuff for everything (though I still have some. )

Can we not just say to our students.... This is an r-controlled vowel; it takes over the sounds a vowel can make. It controls it.


I digressed on your question....

How about word sorts?

Ellie's Mom, I like that idea of the bossy r and the cowboy!

If you have access to showing videos from youtube, the Electric Company has great Bossy R videos. My class loves to sing the songs of sound spellings we are learning.

Here are a few great ones to show: youtube.com search:
Electric Company:
Prankster cam Bossy R
Silhouette Blends Bossy R
shock and Lin Bossy R
Bossy R Veronica Jackson

I save all of my videos in my portaportal.com website and I can access them anytime, as well as my students can check them out at school and at home. If you want to see mine, the guest password is siuslaw. You'll find them under: videos.
