This week we will be practising the phoneme oo and oo.

Remember oo is a digraph (2 letters that make 1 sound) and they make two different sounds.  The long sounding oo (as in boot and moon) and the short sounding oo (foot and cook).



Words to practise:


Long sounding oo                    Short sounding oo

too                                           look

zoo                                           foot                             

boot                                         cook

cool                                         took

food                                         wood

How many other oo words you can find?


Sentence for writing:

Yes/No question (for reading):

Here are some common exception words to learn, try putting them into a sentence with one of the oo words for writing.  For example:    I took my friend to the zoo.  In school I can ask to get a book.
