Cool Froot Loops

I'm sure you're wondering about the title of today's post.  It's all about the oo sound!  Here are some of the things we did in our study of the oo sound ...
First, we watched this short YouTube video on the oo sound.

Then, we completed three worksheets from our Spectrum: Phonics workbook (Grade 1, pages 103-105).  This one had her add the double os to complete the words.
 This one had her match the picture to its double o word.
 And this one had her draw the picture for each double o word listed.  (Any of these pages would be easy to recreate.)
(I thought her pictures were so cute!) 
For our next activity, we needed Froot Loops!  (I got this idea from http://firstgradewow.blogspot.com/search/label/oo.)
I made a "Froot Loop Words" chart on my computer, leaving out the double os.
Then I gave Maggie a bowl of fruit loops and told her to complete the words using the cereal for the os!
 (She enjoyed this activity a lot.)
 And the best part was snacking on our work, of course!  :)
 Next, we made the "double oo looking glasses" that we found on Pinterest.  (Here is the link to print them ... https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B7lv8LqjgCeXNGFmOTk3ZWEtYzc1MS00MTQ4LWJmNzEtMTcyNGYwYTk0MDJj/edit?hl=en.)
 First, Maggie wrote double o words along the rims.
Then, we cut the pieces out and put them together.
 Here's Maggie, with her "double oo looking glasses," ready to spot double os!
Finally, we read Usborne's Phonics Readers: Goose on the Loose by Phil Roxbee Cox.
 Cool!  See you soon!
