This past week, we have been working on the short u sound in Reading. Before we start each new sound for the week, I head over to Youtube and see if they have any videos from Hooked on Phonics for that sound. Here is the one for short u and trust me your kiddos will love it. Mine can't wait to hear it every day.
I also created a little read the room activity with short /u/ pumpkins. I saw this on First Grader At Last and just had to do it! Here are the pumpkins I made for my room and the recording sheet I made to go along with it.
