ir,er,ur are very very tricky sounds since they all sound alike. Does anyone have any good ideas for teaching these sounds to the kiddos? Thanks in advance! : )

rooster

i ask the children what sound a rooster makes: ir er ur! And i place them on roosters and tell them that they all make the same sound so then i make different flash cards on roosters with different ir er ur words and they say their card and place them in the correct column (i make a three column chart that are labled ir er ur on the top). Hope this helps some. I have some other ideas for other phonic sounds that my mentor teacher taught me and the children really learn it. Let me know if you would like them

We are on this pattern this week too and my kids are struggling. I usually am able to give them a 'rule' as to why something is spelled a certain way and this week I am no help!
Would love to hear some ideas.

bossy r (ir, er, ur)

I teach that er is the most common and usually at the end of a word. The ir and ur are usually in the middle of a word. The ir is the rule for number words (first, third). Not a great help but a little extra direction.

Sorry to all of you who have posted and replied i havent gotten on in a couple of days sorry to keep you waiting... The rooster i never saved on my computer but i would be more than happy to make it and share it with all of you!!! And the rest of my ideas, well not mine (they way my mentor taught me) i typed up on word and am going to post them... I also have songs that my mentor teacher shared with me i have one i belived saved and the others i will have to type up because she printed them out for me. And also there is a song that she has that has a whole bunch of phonics rules in one song! Its awsome the kids love it and enjoy it so much especially the lower kids they might not understand the concept yet but they know the song and learn to apply it later on when they are ready... but she has told me that whenever i wanted to i could go copy it down but i just havent had time and sometimes i feel like i may bother her too much because i always have so many questions for her but she is wonderful and has never turned me away but any who on tuesday i am going to make time to go and copy it down and share it with all of you... One more thing that she taught me was "Rule Breakers". She taught me that when you come across a word that doesnt follow the rule for ex: "love" doesnt follow the magic e rule you tell the kids that that word is a rule breaker and has to go to jail because hes breaking the rules what i do is draw a circle around it and put "bars" on it. The kids love it and they understand that not all words have a rule to it. This year one of my little girls gave me an idea of calling it "word jail" so i use her idea and she loves it. Well let me know if you have any questions about the things i am going to post. Once again sorry i took so long. And i will post the roosters as soon as i make them

Clip to ScrapBook #17

Here is the song i use for teaching two vowels together i typed it up on print artist and printed it as a poster and got it laminated... Never mind friends i just tried posting it but it wouldnt let me because it was print artist so if you would like it let me know. There is also a little saying that i posted it on print artist (so i cant post it) "TWIST AND SHOUT ROCK IT OUT TURN THIS WAY SO I CAN SAY" what i did was typed the little chant and underneath i added a big circle and then printed it as a poster. So what i do is i pick a child and call him/her up then they put their back to the poster and while they are facing the other way i write a phonics rule that goes with the rule we are working with, (i laminated the poster so i write with a washable marker and just earase it when im done) so the child says the little chant and turns around and sounds out the word! My kids love it... We use it on thursdays so they look forward to it all week! let me know if you would like it

I have a collection of songs about spelling/phonics rules... I can't post attachments yet, so please send me a message with your email if you would like it. There is one that is sung to the tune of "The Wheels on the Bus" and it explains "bossy r"... "r" bosses the other letters and changes the sounds... With ir, er, and ur I talk a lot about homophones, since there really is no other way to distringuish them by rules/sounds (that I've every heard anyway! . We talk about how their meanings help us remember how to spell them. For example, fir and fur. I would write "fir" then make the "i" look like a tree, and then write "fur" and make the "u" look like it is part of a coat wrapped around someones neck.
I also have a powerpoint that I use to help explain bossy r. Let me know if you would like any of it!

Here's a spinner game and worksheet page that I adapted from something I found on the Internet.
I laminate the spinner game and worksheets for each player( or just one for a group game) and we use a dry erase pen to fill in a word part or, the harder version, a whole word on the blank page.First to complete the page correctly wins ( if you want a winner).

You can make any rules you want, ex. one worksheet and different colored pens for the players. One with most words correct is the winner ( again, if you want this).

I'll post links to 3 terrific illustrated word wall posters which will help with learning these words . They are free from fellow Aussie, Adrian Bruce.

My kids are struggling with er, ir, ur words. I've been over and over it with them and they still can't remember. Maybe by putting it in a song would help them. If you still have it can you please send it to me please!!
