clowning around (teaching ou & ow)


Last week we learned about the letter pairs "ou" and ow" (example: found, clown). 
My students had a lot of fun with these clown activities and they loved the silly clown posters!
You can purchase this unit at my TpT store.


I am one lucky girl. I work at a really great school with a fantastic faculty. This clown pictured below is a 6th grade teacher (my favorite teacher friend), who helped me out with an "ow" and "ou" phonics lesson. She came into our classroom dressed as a clown with owies (band-aids) all over her! The students were in awe and she had their attention the whole time! They love visitors... especially funny ones! She talked about "ow" and "ou" words and read them a Clifford Circus story. Before she left, she gave them popcorn from the circus (the principal popped it for us) and they were in H.E.A.V.E.N.



These are the cute clown posters that are include in my TpT unit.
I love how they have owies all over them!


We also played "Pin the OWIE on the Clown!" They thought this game was hilarious!
They used real band-aids... we went through a lot of band-aids (how can you not when you are teaching the "ow" sound?)... which isn't really out of the ordinary in first grade...

Anyways, this game is also included in my TpT unit.

Like I said, we went through lots of band-aids...
