An r-controlled vowel is one that is immediately followed by the letter ‘r’ and which can no longer be pronounced as a long or short vowel. This is an important lesson to teach primary and I focus on these sounds separately. Teachers should take up the ‘ar er ir or ur’ sounds systematically since there are so many words with these sounds. In this post, we will be discussing the ‘er words‘ with this free printable resource for teachers.

When the letter r follows a vowel, the vowel is usually forced to change its sound. That is why it is also called the ‘BOSSY R.’ ‘ar er ir or ur’ words are called the bossy R words.

When the ‘e’ is followed by r, it makes the sound you hear in the words her, herd, per, fern, nerd, perm, etc.

These ‘er words‘ with pictures flashcards can also be used with dyslexic children to practice reading r-controlled words. I especially created these flashcards for special education. These flashcards can add fun to your lessons. These flashcards can also be used when revisiting the sounds.

Just like we teach primary kids short vowels and long vowel words separately, R Controlled Vowels should also be taught separately and systematically.
