Kids can have a good transition to learning when they pick up a lot of phonics quickly. When they learn to correlate the sounds of the different letters, they can perform well in other educational areas as well like word formation and recognition.
Engaging and fun teaching activates the child's brains in their learning process. Understanding the long and short oo sounds with oo games for 1st graders can turn out to be a great fun activity when you pronounce each syllable of the word loudly and take a pause when the OO syllable comes.
Assist your 1st Grader
Make the little kids roundly pucker their lips while producing the short oo sounds. Have a list of words and ask them to pronounce the words one by one. Emphasize on words where they are struggling with their pronunciation.
For long oo sounds, have them make an "ooo" noise by scowling their lips. They will love to make those lips and make the sound.
Teaching words with phonics is quite easy. Have fun with them while doing some practices like using interactive books, playing songs, or watching videos.
Use the frequently-used words and let them best use their vocal cords. SplashLearn has a wide range of online games. Let them start with acquiring the sound and then moving to learn the words.
