For today’s home learning task, I would like you to practise the tricky words ‘Mr’ and ‘Mrs’. Remember, tricky words are words that we cannot sound out yet. We know some of the GPC’s in the word, but not the tricky part!
What GPC’s do you know in the words ‘Mr’ and ‘Mrs’?
What is the tricky part?
The word ‘Mr’ is a tricky word because the /r/ does not make its usual sound. When put with the M, the word sounds like ‘Mister’, but we write it as Mr.
The word ‘Mrs’ is a tricky word because the /rs/ do not make their usual sounds. When put with the M, the word sounds like ‘Misses’, but we write it as Mrs.
We use these words when talking about someone without using their first name and they are used in front of a surname.
Here is an example sentence using the words ‘Mr’ and ‘Mrs’:
‘Mr Jones went to the shop to buy a present for Mrs Jones’ birthday.’
Write a sentence using the words ‘Mr’ and ‘Mrs’. Draw a picture of what you have said in your sentence.
