3What does Screech want to tell us? Boys,I want to tell you about a trick that helps me with the letter C when I see it in a word or when I am writing words! You probably know that the letter C can make two sounds: /k/ and /s/. Today we will learn how to tell which sound the C is making by looking at the letter that follows it!
4nice cider Here is the trick… If you see the letters e, i, or y after the letter C, it makes the soft /s/ sound! Look at these words!nice/s/ciderThis c says/s/This c says
5Let’s look at these words… Because this c does not have an e, i, or y after it, it says -Because this c has an e after it, it follows the rule and says-/k//s/centcamp
6C /s/ /k/ y i e Remember… If…. is followed by any other letter it says oreCis followed byany other letter/k/it says
7Let’s find the c in the words below and decide what sound it makes! cellcube/s/NiceWork!/k/Does this c say /s/ or /k/?faceclap/s//k/cylindercot/s//k/
