I know what you mean, just started that phase myself.
I have discovered a fab website that is set out in zones (phases) with some great online activities, games and stories. Just look in zones 4 & 5 to find activities comparing similar digraphs
Thanks for that suggestion - looks like a good website. I also used phonicsplay - that's excellent for early phase 5 and all of phase 2 and 3.
Alternative pronunciations are different phonemes for known graphemes.
(a) cat - can't
(c) count - icy
(g) going - ginger
(ow) cow - snow
(ie) cried - field
(y) yoghurt - mummy - sky
If you teach phase 5 letters and sounds you really will get to know what an alternative pronunciation is - it goes on for ever!
