Let's help Dee and Kala by learning about, "CVC Word: The Initial 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.

When we say initial consonant, we are talking about the first sound a letter makes when we say the word, but how do we figure out the first letter? Let’s practice together! Let’s look at this sculpture of a hen. Oh no! The first letter is missing on the nameplate! To figure out the initial consonant first, let's say the word aloud: hen. Next, let's touch and say the first sound we hear /h/. Then, let's name that letter: What letter says /h/? H says /h/! Finally, let's write the letter H where it belongs! H, E, N spells hen! Here's the next sculpture: a dog. Oh my! The first letter is missing again! First, we say the word aloud: dog. Next, we touch and say the first sound we hear: /d/. Then, we name that letter. What letter says /d/? D says /d/. Finally, we write d here where it belongs! D, O, G spells dog! Now it's your turn! The last sculpture is a cat and the first letter is still missing on the nameplate! Let's figure out the initial consonant! First, say the word aloud: cat. What is the first sound you hear in cat? /k/ What letter says /k/ in cat? Remember, there are two letters that make the /k/ sound, but in CAT, it's the letter C! So, write C where it belongs! C, A, T spells cat! Dee and Kala have finished! But who is this walking over to them? While they figure out who this is, let's remember! Today we learned about the first consonant in a CVC word.
