R-Controlled Syllables

R-Controlled Syllables

The letter R can be a bit bossy, making vowels in R-controlled syllables sound different than they usually do. The letter A may sound like ah or ay in many contexts, for example, but when it is used alongside R in the word "cart," it is pronounced differently! In this worksheet, second graders will develop their understanding of letter-sound relationships as they say and sort eight words according to whether or not they are R-controlled.
