The "oo" Sound in Zoo

Welcome back to Read Not Guess. Today we’re going to work on the “oo” sound like in the words “zoo” or “boot.”


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


Let’s get started.


Today’s Letter Sounds


Have your child read the "oo" sound as if they just saw a shooting star or a really big piece of chocolate cake:


oo

oo

oo


Word Practice


Now we’re going to work on blending the double “o” 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:


z oo

zoo


And:


m oo n

moon


And:


h oo t

hoot


And:


t oo th

tooth


And:


s oo n

soon


And:


sh oo t

shoot


Silly Story


See if your child can read this short decodable story:


Zack is a jazzy zebra.


He zooms in the zoo.


He zips by the goofy rabbits.


He zigs past the loony raccoons.


He zags by the barn owls too.


Zack jumps for joy all day.


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.
