28 What is a chicken letter and who is its buddy?
We blend words by tapping the individual sounds! 29 d i g
WHAT DO WE TAP? We tap out the sounds we hear, or what you can sound out. These are words like ‘cat’, ‘cake’, ‘bell’. We tap with our right hand only. The cue is “right, red, ready”. This is the foundation for word analysis. 30
WHAT DON’T WE TAP? We don’t tap trick words, we “pound” them out on our left arm. These are words we can’t sound out. The letters in the words trick us, such as “of”. It sounds like “uv”, but it’s spelled “of”. Some other trick words: you, said, could, after, also 31
We learn about word structure and sentence structure. 32 Did Rick get a red rash?
WE ASK A LOT OF QUESTIONS: How many words did you write? How many letters are in the word? How many digraphs? How many consonants? Tell me the ‘ck’ rule. Tell me the rule for the bonus letters. 33
THE RULES FOR ‘C’ AND ‘K’: 34 If ‘c’ steals one of ‘k’s vowels, ‘c’ has to sound like ‘s’, as in ‘city’.
These are vowel/consonant combinations that share portions of each sound. They are nasal sounds, with one letter drawing the other letter sound(s) into the nose and making the sounds come out “glued together”. 36 all, am, an, ang, ing, ong, ung, ank, ink, onk, & unk
