Find the /f/ sounds
Submitted by Marc Stewart on 7 January 2018.
This is a spelling/phonetics resource that could be used as a starter, differentiated activity or filler. Learners colour in the squares where the words have an /f/ sound, these words are hidden with words that are ‘gh’ but aren’t pronounced /f/. When completed the grid shows a smiley face. There are a few trap words in here which can be used for dictionary or internet search practice.

Find the f sounds - not really E3
Many thanks for this worksheet. The rules for the /f/ sound are really helpful.
I selected this worksheet for my E3 students, based on the name of the file (e3l1l2), but when we worked with the resource, I realised that it really isn't suitable for E3. We found there were too many words which you wouldn't expect E3 learners to learn.
In addition, a word like 'aught' is rather old-fashioned, as we normally use the 'ought' spelling in Standard English these days. There was a word which wasn't in our dictionary (Pugh) and 'slough' as a verb is very unusual.
I wonder if the worksheet could be displayed on the website as L1 L2? Also, a few edits would improve it. Otherwise, great resource - thank you!!
