The Vowel Sound in Good and Book

Welcome back to Read Not Guess. Today we’re going to work on the double “o” sound like in the words “good” or “book.”


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


Let’s get started.


Today’s Letter Sounds


We already covered the long “oo” sound like in “moon” or “spoon.” Today we’re going to work on words “cook” and “wood” with a different “oo” sound.


If you want to hear an example, try this short YouTube video.


Have your child read the word “good” like they just did a nice job:


g oo d

good


Word Practice


Now we’re going to work on blending more words with the short “oo” sound. 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:


b oo k

book


And:


t oo k

took


And:


l oo k

look


And:


f oo t

foot


And:


w oo d

wood


Silly Story

See if your child can read this short story, adapted from Reading A-Z:


A Good Day for Fishing


Zara took a fishing rod and went to the brook in the woods.


“I want to hook a good fish that I can cook,” she said.


Zara felt a tug on the hook. It was too small.


She kept trying until she got a good one.


Zara took the fish back to her cabin, got out her cookbook, and sat down for dinner.


If they read it 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.
