Daily(ish) Decodable: The "ur" sound

Today we’re going to work on the “ur” sound in words like “turn” and “curl." If your child needs a refresher on this sound, try starting here.

Now on to today's lesson...

Rhyme It Parents, read the following words out loud. Then ask your child which one does NOT rhyme with the others?

curl girl boy ------------------------------- Say It Have your child point to the sound and say it 3 times: _ur



------------------------------- Blend It Have your child read these words: fur








Read It Have your child read the passage below:

That Hurt

I put on my skates.

I go onto the rink and begin to skate fast.

I can feel the wind on my skin.

But when I turn, I make a mistake. I trip and fall and hurt my leg.

I don’t want to cry, but my leg burns. I need help.

My sister Kate takes my hand and pulls me to my feet.

With her help, we go back to that tricky turn. We take it slow, and we do it together. I am back on track! ------------------------------- Explain It

Now have your child answer a couple questions about the story:

  1. What happened in the story?

  2. Who helps the author get back on their feet?
