Product Description
This video is great for introducing, practicing, and/or reviewing "tricky" letter combinations in one-syllable words. In two minutes, children practice 26 letter combinations through a fun, non-threatening song and lively visuals. At the end of the song, you can pause five frames (with 5-6 words/images each) to compare and make observations about r-controlled vowels, diphthongs, vowel digraphs, consonant digraphs, and more. Students may say, for example, "I notice that er, ir, and ur all make the same sound," or "I notice that the letters ea make different sounds in bread and eagle." While your main objective may be to focus on one combination, playing the song can be a quick musical brain break as children focus on that combination, review combinations they've learned, and gain exposure/practice with combinations that they haven't yet mastered.

Note that this is one of 28 videos in my Phonics Time video BUNDLE, available here. You can also get the matching mp3 music and book that contains lyrics and lessons here.
