Transcript CVC Sounds: The Final Consonant
There is a mystery in Dee and Kala's hometown of CVC ville! All the final letters have been taken off the store signs! Dee and Kala want to help replace the missing letters, but aren't sure which ones they need. Let's help them by learning about, "CVC Words: The Final Consonant." A CVC word is a special kind of word made up of three letters that follow the same pattern each time: a consonant, a vowel, and a consonant. Consonants and vowels are the names for the two types of letters in the alphabet. Vowels are the letters a, e, i, o, and u. Consonants are all the other letters that are not vowels. When we say final consonant, we are talking about the last sound a letter makes in the word. But how do we figure out that last letter? Let's look at the sign on the sub shop. The last letter is gone! To figure out the final consonant. First, let's say the word aloud: sub! Next, touch and say each sound we hear: /s/ /u/ /b/. Then, we name the last letter we hear: which letter says /b/? B says /b/. Finally, we write the letter B at the end of the word! S. U. B spells sub! Next, let's help Dee and Kala fix the coffee shop sign that says: mug. The last letter is missing again! First, we say the word aloud: mug. Next, we touch and say each sound we hear: /m/ /u/ /g/. Then, we name the last letter we hear: which letter says /g/? G says /g/. So, we write G here at the end! M. U. G spells mug! Can you fix the vet’s sign? The last letter is gone here too! First, say the word aloud: vet. Can you touch and say each sound you hear in vet? /v/ /e/ /t/. What letter says /t/ in vet? T says /t/ in vet. So, write T at the end! V. E. T spells vet! As Dee and Kala finish looking around CVC ville, let's remember! Today we learned about the final consonant in a CVC word. A CVC word is a special kind of word that is made up of three letters: a consonant, a vowel, and a consonant. When we say final consonant, we are talking about the sound the last letter makes in the word. To figure it out: first, we say the word aloud. Next, we touch and say each sound we hear. Then, we name the last letter we hear. Finally, we write that letter at the end of the word. "Dee! Come here! Look what I found in the park." "Are those the missing letters stuck in that tree?" "I guess the mystery is solved. A storm blew the letters off." "Well, I am certainly blown away by this turn of events."
