Tips for Teaching Hard and Soft C Sounds

Teaching Hard and Soft c sounds

Letter names can often be confusing for young children just learning to read and can make learning sounds more challenging. Have you ever had a student who said that y said /w/ or w said /d/. Another place this tends to come up is with the letter c. Many students will identify the /s/ sound for c, when most of the words they are able to read use the hard c sound as in the words cat, cup and cake. So after initially having them put the soft c sound on the back burner, it can be difficult to build an understanding of when c makes its soft sound.
