R Controlled Vowel Help!

Clip to ScrapBook #1

Does anyone have any good worksheets or ideas for teaching the r controlled vowels: er, ir, ur, or, ore, oo, oar? I am finding it very hard to meet this benchmark because we have weekly spelling words and sight words so I don't want to overwhelm the seconders with all these words at once. Any ideas would be great appeciated!

Cute Songs

Here are a couple cute songs I've used for teaching r-controlled vowels:

Bossy "R" Song(tune: London Bridge)
Bossy "r" changes the vowel
changes the vowel, changes the vowel
Bossy "r" changes the vowel, Bossy "r" sound.

When an "r" comes after an "a",
after an "a", after an "a"
When an "r" comes after an "a",
It says "ar".
Car and harp and chart and hard,
chart and hard, chart and hard,
When an "r" comes after an "a",
It says "ar".

When an "r" comes after an "e", after an "i", or after an "u"
When an "r" comes after these three
It says "er".
Her and germ and bird and nurse,
bird and nurse, bird and nurse,
When an "r" comes after these three,
It says "er".

When an "r" comes after an "o",
after an "o", after an "o"
When an "r" comes after an "o",
It says "or".
Horse and fork and short and corn,
short and corn, short and corn,
When an "r" comes after an "o",
It says "or".

Bossy "r" changes the vowel
changes the vowel, changes the vowel
Bossy "r" changes the vowel,
Bossy "r" sound.

Another Bossy R Song
Tune: He's Got the Whole World in His Hands

Refrain:Oh, the bossy-bossy r
Always gets his way.
Yes, the bossy-bossy r
Always has his say.
And you can wish upon a star,
But you won't get far
If you ignore the bossy r.

You got the bossy-bossy r
In burn and turn.
You got the bossy-bossy r
In sir and her.
And you can set up quite a stir,
But you won't get far
If you ignore the bossy r.


You got the bossy-bossy r
In barn,and yarn.
You got the bossy-bossy r
In harm and farm.
And you can sound out the alarm,
But you won't get far
If you ignore the bossy r.


You got the bossy-bossy r
In cork and fork.
You got the bossy-bossy r
In corn and born.
And you can set out in the morn,
But you won't get far
If you ignore the bossy r.


You got the bossy-bossy r
In bear and care.
You got the bossy-bossy r
In dare and share.
And you can go ‘most anywhere,
But you won't get far
If you ignore the bossy r.


Refrain:
Oh, the bossy-bossy r
Always gets his way.
Yes, the bossy-bossy r
Always has his say.
And you can wish upon a star,
But you won't get far
If you ignore the bossy r.

When I student taught my teacher would always say "ur as in turtle", "ir as in girl", "ear as in earth". She would find one word that had the r-controlled sound and have them draw it or color it if she had a coloring page for it. She found the neatest coloring, then taped it to the board or wall under the correct "r" word. They could reference it throughout the day.
If they had trouble reading a word with the "r"...she would say, "It's the ir as in girl", etc and point to it.
I really liked this method!

sort words (Words Their Way is a good resource) the generalizations should have a lot more staying power. What we discover and learn ourselves has far more value than anything that we are TOLD. Sorting words also causes kids to look carefully at words, notice patterns, etc.

R controlled...

Try this website:
www.adrianbruce.com He has an R control game you can print...I used it and also adapted it into an advanced version (when the yare ready). On the advanced version I just place ir,er,ur,and ear on the card and they have to give a word. (The game gives words)
Also, I play tic tac toe: set up a tic tac toe grid and before playing, ask the student which R control vowel he/she wants to use. Players must write words that only contain the r controlled vowel to win. You lose when you can't think of any : ) I used the card game for gr 3-6 and they love it...they are uneasy with my advanced version.

http://www.firstschoolyears.com/lite.../vphonemes.htm Another good site! Let me know how it goes.

big mouth

I teach the controll R as having a "big mouth" and he wants to say his name and not his sound -follow the rules- we talk about rules to follow in class and he is rude to A
such as CAR but I show the kids even though you say "C" "R" "we know that every word has to have a vowel so A is important she is just being nice and letting R have his way. I think when you bring things down on a personal level kids identify the abstract better
