Creature Phonics Early Reading/Blending - CVC - Short 'u'

In this Early Reading Skills class, we will learn/practice the phonetic alphabet, as well as some specific blends that go with short 'u', and the consonants 'b', 'g', 'h', 'g' in the CVC pattern (bug, hug, rug).

Class Experience

The goal is to help students begin to recognize the phonetic alphabet as well as blend a few letters together to make short three-letter 
words in the CVC format (consonant - vowel - consonant) with the short 'u' sound. 
I am a retired home educator who loves to see children get a good foundation when learning to read.
A copy of the worksheet* (see file below) and a pencil with an eraser. Thanks.
*or a piece of lined paper and pencil  or a whiteboard and marker will be fine
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
20 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
My sources come from the book entitled "Reading Reflex" by Geoffrey Mcguinness and https://www.wordhippo.com/.
