Word Sort
Read over the list of long u words together.  On the top of a sheet of paper, make three columns with the three different ways to spell long u shown here.  Let your child know there are other ways to spell long u as well that will be discussed at another time.  Sort the words and write them under the correct heading.

Unit Flute True
Unicorn Tube Cue

To extend this activity, have your child come up with three more words that are not on the list that would work in each column. 

Begin by writing the words on index cards.  Continue practicing with your child until he or she can say the words accurately.  Mix the cards up each time to further help with reading practice. 

Once your child can read the words on the index cards, print out this list of words.  Start by reading the list to him or her.  Then, have your child read with you. Finally, have your child read independently.  The goal is for your child to be able to read each list in under one minute.
