Sound: oo (short sound)



‘Around the octopus’ mouth, whoop, around the octopus’ mouth’


Today we watched the phonics fairy read the story ‘I like books’ dressed as a monkey!


When you make arms like a monkey you can see the digraph oo in your arms!

Afterwards, we practised recording oo words together on the carpet.

oo oo I like books!


Be careful not to say oooooh (that’s the long oo sound that we are learning later in the week) – the sound we learnt today is the short oo sound e.g. took, look, book.
