Learning Phonics Words

The main sound that a phonogram makes is called its first sound. The first sound of /oo/ is OO as in moon. The unwritten phonics rule is that we usually use the first sound. 

The digraph OO as in moon sounds very much like the /u/ for ESL learners. It's the main way we say this sound, so these make good elementary ESL phonics worksheets.

English words containing OO usually use a CVVC pattern, meaning that there are one or more consonants on either end of the phonogram in a one syllable word.

There are no blends or silent letters as OO says only one sound.
