The "ar" Sound

Welcome back to Read Not Guess. Today we’re going to work on the “ar” sound.


Both parent and child will need to be able to see the screen.


Let’s get started.


Today’s Letter Sounds


Today we’re going to work on the “ar” sound. It makes the "arrr" sound like a pirate. Have fun with it! Have your child read the "ar" sound like a pirate a few times as they point to the letters:


ar

ar

ar


Word Practice


Now we’re going to work on “blending” the “ar” sound in words. Your child can start slowly by saying each sound individually, but each time, they should try to say it just a bit faster.


Ask your child to say the correct sounds as they point to the letters:


j ar

jar


And:


c ar

car


And:


st ar

star


And:


p ar k

p ark

park


And:


st ar t

st art

start


Silly Sentences


See if your child can read these:


Jan, is that a shark in the garden? Run away now!

No, Barb, don't be silly. It’s just a toy in the grassy yard.


If they read them smoothly, great! If they stumble, have them keep working until they get it right.


That’s it for today. We’ll see you next time.
