The three most difficult r-controlled vowels to teach are er, ir, and ur. Students have to learn and commit to memory which one to use in which words. This product has 8 words for each r-controlled vowel. There are two sets of puzzles and a worksheet that use the same words for the much needed multiple exposures. There are also interactive notebook pages, practice worksheets, and a game!
