Phonics Music Video: R-Controlled Vowels, Digraphs, & More!

Supporting document included
This is an additional download that supports the video.
This video is great for introducing, practicing, and/or reviewing tricky letter combinations in one-syllable words. In two minutes, children practice 26 "Letter Tricks" 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 or practice with combinations that they haven't yet mastered.

***This product comes with the ability to stream the song through TpT, plus a link to my private Vimeo site, where you can stream AND download the song. In addition, you'll get a black-and-white reproducible page that includes all letter combinations--great for support while singing, when studying letter combinations, and during writing time.
