Chris reads Phonemic Poem 6 on the /ʤ/ sound.
The jury budged the jokey judge.
Jolly Julie made us fudge.
Jest and joke; jump to your ledge.
Juicy dew drenches the hedge.
Gentle legends due to age;
dubious duties induce rage.
Jumping genies jive unhinged.
Duly produce this poem you’ve binged.
Phonemic Poem 2:
/ɪ/ or /i:/
Bold = /ɪ/
Underlined = /i:/ (ee)
Bitch or beach? Hit or heat?
he likes is eating meat.
TV in bits – see or miss?
It’s not easy
saying these or this.
Six chicken pieces please.
Fill up, feel full with chips in cheese.
misty windows; seat, sit.
it with ease. In a bit!
Phonemic Poem 1:
hot, heart; the hurt has started.
yearn, yarn; the fear has parted.
Car can’t start. Glass on grass!
tort, tart; fast can pass.
or far; the past can’t last;
charm friends with this classy blast.
Happy birthday, Emily Dickinson!
