Cued Articulation

This is a system we use to support our teaching of phonics.  Children quickly become familiar with the signs and it helps them to remember the sounds. The link below explains how it works.

Set 4: ck, e, u, r
Set 5: h, b, f, ff, l, ll, ss

Phase 3:

Set 6: j, v, w, x

Set 7: y, z, zz, qu

Consonant digraphs: ch (chair), sh (shell), th (thumb and this), ng (sing)

Vowel digraphs: ai (rain), ee (meet), igh (light), oa (boat), oo (book and food), ar (park),

or (fork), ur (turn), ow (clown), oi (boil), ear (beard), air (fair), ure (pure), er (hammer)
