Lesson 11


Phonics- Complex Syllables

In these lessons we are practicing more complex syllables, with more than one consonant sound. Remember to blend the sounds from left to right. Please return to the first phonics lesson if you forget the sounds a letter makes.


Practice

These are open syllables, which mean they end in a vowel and will make their long sound.

Remember in Lesson 1 that syllables with an 'e, i, or y'  before 'c' and 'g' could make a softer /s/ or /j/ sound. In this lesson, there is an 'l' before the vowels, so 'c' and 'g' will not be affected, and make a /k/ and /g/ sound, respectively.

(* Reminder: When a syllable ends in a vowel, it will most likely have a long vowel sound. In these lessons, syllables ending in the letters 'i' and 'y' are pronounced with a long vowel sound, and sound like the word 'eye.')

Next Steps

Wonderful job! Please go to the next phonics lesson.
