The "ow" Sound, Part I

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


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.


If you missed a lesson, you can always go back and find those here.


Ok, let’s get started.


Today’s Letter Sounds



This week we're going to cover two different sounds that the letters "ow" can make. It's important for kids to understand that in English the same letters can be combined to make different sounds, depending on the word.


Today we're going to focus on the "ow" sound someone might make if they got hurt. Have them read the "ow" sound and point to the letters as if they just hurt their hand:


ow

ow

ow


Now let’s try using the “ow” sound in a couple words:


n ow

n ow

now


And:


h ow

h ow

how


And:


c ow

c ow

cow


And:


w ow

w ow

wow

Silly Sentence Challenge


If you think your child is ready, see if they can read this:


How now brown cow?


If they read it smoothly, great! If they stumble, have them re-read it another time or two to get it right.


That’s it for today. We’ll see you Friday,
