The Letter "R"

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

Remember that we’re going to focus on the sounds the letters make. Both parent and child will need to be able to see the screen.

Ok, let’s get started.

Today’s Letter Sound

Today we’re going to learn the letter “R.” It’s pronounced like the beginning of the word “rat” or the end of the word “car.”

Ask your child to make the “r” sound 3 times as they point to the letters:

r r r Ask your child if they can think of any words that start with the “r” sound. If they need help, the words red, rip, and rabbit all start with the “r” sound.

Have them say the “r” sound 3 more times as they point to the letters:

r r r Word Practice

Now we’re going to work on “blending” letter sounds into 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:

r a t r at rat And:

r a p r ap rap By the end, double check to make sure your child is reading the word "rap" (not "ra-puh"). Keep practicing until they get it right.

Now:

r i p r ip rip And:

r u n r un run One more:

r u n s r un s runs Overnight Challenge

Ask your child to think of 3 things that end with the “R” sound.

That’s it for today. We’ll see you Wednesday, ~Chad
