This 'Sound au' spelling quiz helps elementary school children learn that these letters make the ‘or’ sound.

When you say the ‘au’ sound, it sounds like ‘or’. This is quite a difficult sound to learn as it looks nothing like the way it sounds, so you have to try and remember this one! This spelling quiz will test you on words that have the ‘au’ sound in them.
