the first lesson.

School is in session!  I am currently hosting a series on Grammar 101 - a refresher course!  You are sure to learn something...I did! 

Every grammar lesson has a basic foundation.  I think it's safe to say that if you are reading this, you have a pretty solid foundation :) but here is a little refresher:

Sixteen letters make only ONE sound.
  • b, d, f, h, j, k, l, m, n, p, q, r, t, v, x, z. 
Ten letters make more than one sounds.
  • Five vowels - a, e, i, o, u
  • Three copy cats - c, g, s
  • Two sometimes vowels - y, w

GRAMMAR 101: Lesson 1 - Copy Cat "c"

The sound of the letter "c" copies "k" or "s".  It copies "s" when the letter after it is "e", "i", or "y".

Here are a few examples:

cent          city          cycle

faces        dance       glance

ice           chance      lace

race         cell          cinder


Next Lesson: Copy Cat "G"

Did you learn something in today's lesson?  Buzz with your partner and share what you learned :)
