This is a great game to play to support students with sight words that include the letters O U G H. PLEASE NOTE: All ways of saying the ough are intermingled, not separated This is not a lesson on different sounds made by OUGH. There are different ways of saying OUGH, but the focus for this activity is to develop the skill to spell words with OUGH. There is an expression used (O U Grumpy Horse) to help student recall how to spell words that include this group of letters:
"O U Grumpy Horse"
Many students continue to struggle spelling words that include ough.; and the words are included in this game.
By putting the words together under the category of O U G H, with a visual of a grumpy horse, students should increase ability to recall quicker and eventually internalize how to spell, and recognize when the words are read using a multisensory game approach!

Students thoroughly enjoy this game.
There are a few activities that students can do in addition to OUGH Bingo, using the materials:
Students can write words in sentences
Students can alphabetize words - a great way to focus in on specific letter sequence
Students can orally provide a sentence to the group after identification of the word.
All of the words have ough ; ought as part of their spelling makeup. If students can visualize or group these challenging words, both decoding (reading) and encoding (writing) will improve.
I have documented growth on the part of students using this game. It is my hope you experience the same results. If you have questions, please just email me...
As always, it is my hope that you kindly follow the rule of purchasing additional licenses at half-off for each class or group that will use this game. I do believe in, "Honesty is the best policy!"
