Phonics Lesson: ir / er / ur / or

The English /r/ sound can be difficult for non-native speakers to produce. But learning the pronunciation of words with the /ər/ sound is only half the problem—there are different spellings to learn as well! The
/ər/ sound can be spelled ir, or, er, and ur in English. In this week’s phonic lesson, students will get practice with this sound and the common spelling variations.

This eight-page lesson can be broken up and completed over several days or finished all at once. The variety of exercises, including reading, spelling, listening, speaking, and several fun word puzzles, are sure to keep your young learners engaged.
