This 'Sound ou' spelling quiz asks elementary school children to spell words with that sound. To help you teach this sound, think of the word ‘cloud’ and use that as your reminder on how it should be said.

The only high frequency word that ends with the letters ‘ou’ is ‘you’. However, the sound in the word ‘you’ is different to how the ‘ou’ should sound. It’s an exception to the rules. Other than in this word, the ‘ou’ is pronounced like ‘ow’ – as in “Ow, you just hurt me!” These spellings will all include the ‘ow’ sound. Can you spell the missing words?
