Transcript The Soft C— Let's Practice!

Goopaw says get ready to practice identifying "The Soft C". Remember, C will say /s/ when it is followed by an E, I or a Y. When it is followed by any other letter it will make the harder /k/ sound. Let's try sorting words with hard and soft C sounds. Here is the first word: celery. Does it have a hard or soft C? It has a soft C since it is followed by the letter e which makes it say /s/, celery. Here is another word: pencil. Does it have a hard or soft C? It has a soft C since it is followed by the letter I which makes it say /s/, pencil. Here is the next word: corn. Does it have a hard or soft C? It has a hard C since it is not followed by an E, I, or Y. It is followed by an O, so it says /k/, corn. Try this word: bouncy. Does it have a hard or soft C? It has a soft C since it is followed by the letter Y which makes it say /s/, bouncy. Here's the last word: call. Does it have a hard or soft C? It has a hard C since it is not followed by an E, I, or Y. It is followed by an A, so it says /k/, call. Goopaw had so much fun practicing with you today! See you next time!
