Skill: Spelling/reading pattern (ur)

The combination of a vowel + r is called Bossy “r”

Bossy “r” is bossy but polite, it lets the vowel go first, but it doesn't let it say its sound.

Ex:  fur   The vowel “uprecedes the r”; the vowel “u” is silent (no vowel sound).

You only hear the consonant sound of “r”.
