In foundational skills the students learned about the two sounds of "C". We made a C-train and used the tracks to figure out when to make the /k/ sound and when to make the /s/ sound. Students learned that when C is followed by the letters e, i, or y it will make the /s/ sound. When it is followed by other letters it should make the /k/ sound. This helps students when they are trying to figure out an unknown word. They know to make the /s/ sound in words such as ceiling, cymbal, and circle. This will help them decode words more quickly and reliably.
