Review and closing
Tell students that they're going to play a game.
Divide the class into two teams.
Put the word cards (uncle, fun, jump, up, ugly, nut, mug, cup, bug, luck, run, bun, pup, walk, sleep, pot, zip, slip, net, top and lip) into the cardboard box.
Shake the box to mix the cards.
Tell students that inside the box, there are some words with the short 'u' sound and some words without the short 'u' sound.
Explain to students that each team member will put their hand into the box and take out one word card. Each team will then gather their words together and pronounce each word; they will put all the words with the short 'u' sound in one group and all the words without the short 'u' sound in another group. They must then count to see how many words they have with the short 'u' sound; the team with the most words containing the short 'u' sounds wins.
Have each team member to take out a card out of the box.
Guide your students as they pronounce and group their words.
