We often come across words like wrap, wreck, wren, wrath, wrench, wrong, wrinkle, wrist, write etc. Children try to blend the w and r sound together but ‘wr’ is not a consonant blend. It is in fact a digraph where you hear only one sound. The digraph wr is just another way to spell the sound /r/.
Let’s discuss the worksheets for ‘wr words’ in detail.
Read the ‘wr words’ and highlight the wr sound in the above words list. Remember to tell the kids that w is always silent in the wr sound.
Have them read the wr words – wrap, wrath, wreath, wrinkles, wring, wrench, wren, wreck, wrestle, wrong etc. and highlight the wr sound in each word.
Though there are a limited number of words with the wr sound, I noticed just often kids forgot that w is silent in the wr sound. They tried to blend the w and r sound. So, I decided to create these worksheets focusing on the wr sound and take it up separately.
Identify the wr sound pictures and read the wr words in the word bank. Write the correct wr words next to their pictures in the above worksheet.
In the last worksheet for wr words, identify the picture, and complete the words by pasting the tiles. The words are wrap, wrong, wrath, wrist, wren, wreck etc. This 4 letters wr sound worksheet is ideal for kindergarteners.
I am sharing another resource with you which is ‘My book about wr words.’
Circle the pictures with ‘wr sound’ on page 2. The pictures are watermelon, wrath, wrench, write, whistle, wrinkles, wrestle and wreath. On page 3, write ‘wr’ and the words will ‘wr sound.’
The instructions to print are mentioned in the book. This book requires only 2 sheets to form an A5 size (approximately) book. The sheets will be printed on both sides. All the pages are numbered so there will not be any confusion.
In case, you have to print on both sides manually, print pages 1 and 8 and pages 6 and 3 first. On the reverse of pages 1 and 8, print pages 2 and 3. On the reverse of pages 6 and 3, print pages 4 and 5.
Since the print will be on both sides, use a thicker sheet.
I have also created ‘my book about kn words.‘ Do check it.
On page 3, write ‘wr’ and the words will ‘wr sound.’
On the next two pages, children have to frame sentences using the words given. A sentence begins with a capital letter. This rule will help children understand the first word of the sentence. Sentences end with a period or full stop or question mark or exclamation mark. This will make punctuation rules clear and also help children frame sentences. Do not forget to color the pictures.
The last two pages are for writing sentences. Children have to write sentences with ‘wr words’ whose pictures have been provided. The ‘wr words‘ are the same that the children have traced on page 3.
