This free Bossy R activities set includes two different phonics activities for practicing r-controlled vowels in the classroom or online. You will receive a deck of Boom Cards and a set of printable clip cards for practicing the following r-controlled vowel (or the 'bossy R') sounds - AR, ER, IR, OR and UR.
This set is intended as a preview for, or to be used alongside, the full set of R Controlled Vowels Clip Cards and Boom Cards which is available here.
Boom Cards are a great digital phonics activity, perfect for distance learning. Clip cards are a hands-on, tactile way for students to practice Bossy R sounds. Both phonics activities are self-checking and provide instant feedback for students.
These printable and digital phonics activities are perfect for phonics revision. Both the clip cards and the Boom Cards are a great addition to the classroom and can be easily incorporated into a phonics center for first grade, second grade, third grade or ESL learners.

ABOUT CLIP CARDS
These clip cards are quick and easy to prepare, and instructions are included. To prepare the clip cards, print on cardstock and cut around the edges and down the middle of the page to create two separate cards. Fold each card in half and glue together. For extra durability, laminate the cards. (Full instructions are included.)
Students use clothespins or paper clips to choose the letter/letters missing from the given word, then flip the card to check their answer against the correct one given on the back.
