This particular student had only been reviewing ow as in cow and er as in her once per month. I wanted to make certain that she was able to read these two new-to-her words, so I sought out the cards and had her review them, even though they weren’t on the scheduled rotation for the day. You may or may not need to do this, depending on where your student is in the progression of the binder. If your student is regularly reviewing these sounds, it might be unnecessary, though some students do really enjoy adding new words to old cards, sort of like they are keeping a collection of words instead of things.
With that said, please note that the e on the end of were is silent. If I knew why the Powers That Be (Mr. Webster, perhaps?) made that decision, I’d be a very rich lady.
Again, I have regrets about teaching so many words as “sight” words when most of them have real rules that they follow. Oh well.
