Product Description
This Sounds of OU Packet is designed to help your students increase their phonemic awareness and ability to distinguish the variety of sounds ‘ou’ makes. This packet is full of FUN learning! It includes a card game, board game, sound sorting and recording, spelling, alphabetizing, sentence writing, sound mapping, rhyming, spinning, and magnifying to find correctly spelled words. There are over 80 unique 'ou' words that your students will encounter while playing the games and completing the "Print and GO" sheets. Tons of GREAT Learning!

This pack includes:
* 36 WORD CARDS that can be used by individual students for sound sorting (I’ve included sheets for sound sorting all of the cards, as well as four of each sound). Or you can have all your students “Write the Room” with these cards. These cards focus on the four most common sounds of ‘ou’: oe (long o), ow, u (short u) and long oo.

*18 OU SOUND CHALLENGE CARDS that will inspire your students to really listen to the words and phrases containing ‘ou’. These include the four common sounds of ‘ou’ as well as the ‘er’ sound (‘ou’ makes with ‘r’ in ‘courage’) and the short o sound (as in ‘cough’).

* 27 TOURIST TRAP CARDS that will add some excitement to the games and challenge your students to spell ‘ou’ words.

* 9 PRINT & GO SHEETS for sound sorting, recording, spelling, alphabetizing, sentence writing, sound mapping, rhyming, spinning and magnifying. Check out the FREEBIE!!! Cut and Sort sheet.

* RULES for playing THE SOUNDS of OU CARD GAME with all the cards.

* JOURNEY to the SOUTH BOARD GAME that will have your students READING, LISTENING, SPELLING and WRITING and having a bunch of FUN!
