Phonics Session 12: Practising the digraph 'er'

Before we look at the digraph of the day, I wonder who can remember the 2 new tricky words I showed you yesterday? Can you read them?



If you made some handprint tricky words then quick, go and high-5 them now!

The focus sound today is 'er'. We know 2 digraphs that make that sound... can you think of the other one? Which one comes at the end of words and which one goes in the middle of a word?

Now watch the Geraldine episode carefully... I bet you can't spot any words with the 'er' digraph in! If you do spot some, where does the 'er' sound come? Were you right?

Can you think of any words with the er sound in?

We are going to practise reading some words with the er sound in now. Click on the link below and it will take you to phonics play to the buried treasure game. You need to click on phase 3 and then the 'er' sound and then decide whether each word is real or nonsense. I wonder how many gold coins you will win!



In case the link doesn't work for you here are some words you can play with instead:
