On the Farm-AR and -OR are the easiest of the r-controlled vowels. They are easily attached to sounds: -AR, as in farm, barn, and garden, and -OR, as in corn, horse, and pork. The other 3 r-controlled vowels are harder for a reason: they sound the same.
-ER, as in herd, water, feather, and spider.
-IR, as in firl, bird, chirp, and birth.
-UR, as in purr, turkey, and turnip.
The picture shows a rooster saying, "er, ir, ur." You have to say it like you are crowing, "er, ir, ur." (Funny story, I had a teacher assistant who was in charge of an intervention group came to me and said, "I am not sure why the rooster saying cock-a-doodle-do helps the students." Please say it like they are actually crowing.
