      From a phoneme-grapheme correspondences point of view, ‘does’ has an ‘oe’ vowel spelling, I also point out to kids that it’s an ‘es’ third person agreement like wash-washes. I say an /o/ as in ‘octopus’ in the word ‘hover’, and the start of ‘once’ is tricky because there is a /w/ sound we don’t write. But I agree with you about the others and have added them, thanks very much. Alison
