This week we will explore r-controlled vowels. Even though (er) is used a bit more than (ir) and (ur), there is not a clear rule for these r-controlled vowels. Therefore, we are giving you the words this week. Study! Study!
Focus: er, ir, ur
Words: her, verb, sister, under, bird, first, third, birthday, hurt, turn
Red Words: These words will be on the test. (before, does, need, said, any)
