Teach your student the phonics advanced code in as little as 8 weeks with our 170-page workbook and instruction manual.

The /oo/ sound has nine spellings, oo (soon), ew (chew), ue (blue), u-e (rule), o (do), ui (fruit), ou (soup), u (truth), and ough (through). This makes it one of the more complicated sounds to spell accurately. In addition, most of the spellings represent other vowel sounds that must also be learned which complicates the reading process as well.

Of the 7,000 words in the database constructed from a popular children’s dictionary, 111 of them are one-syllable words in which the vowel sound is /oo/.
