This oo words worksheet is so fun it won’t feel like a worksheet at all!

Have you seen all the free resources I’ve shared as I teach my kindergartner to read?
Actually, he’s already reading fluently. To give you an idea of where he’s at, this hilarious series is one of his favorites.
But even though he does really well at reading words in context, his phonics skills are lagging a bit behind. So I’ve been creating resources to nail down phonics patterns in fun, hands-on ways.
After finishing over fifty activities for silent e words, we’re moving on to vowel digraphs.
First up: oo words!
Digraphs are two letters that make one sound. A vowel digraph is made up of two vowels (a, e, i, o, u). The digraph “oo” can make two sounds: oo as in moon and oo as in book.
Because the oo sound in moon is more common, we’re learning that one first.
I began by writing oo on a post-in note and asking my son if he knew what sound these letters make. He knew right away.
Next, he took the Froot Loops that I had sitting near us and placed them on top of the o’s. One step ahead of me. 🙂
I’m not a sugary cereal fan, and we don’t keep Froot Loops in our pantry (yes, that’s really how it’s spelled – because there’s no real fruit in Froot Loops!). But I have a bag of stale Froot Loops on hand for various crafts and activities.
They were perfect for this one! I just printed the worksheet and had my son glue two of them in each box to make a word.
He breezed right through it and was happy to read the words to me when he was finished.
Stay tuned for more activities with oo words!
