English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish SpeakerSeries

Before beginning English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker Book 1, practice the consonant sounds below with your students. Many of the consonant sounds are the same in English as in Spanish.  The letters: q, w, x and y have been left off this list because they are introduced and practiced in English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker Book 1.

Bb says /b/ as in boy.

Cc says /c/ as in cat.

Dd says /d/ as in dog.

Ff says /f/ as in fun.

Gg says /g/ as in goat.

Hh says /h/ as in house.

Jj says /j/ as in jump.

Kk says /k/ as in kite.

Ll says /l/ as in lion.

Mm says/m/ as in mat.

Nn says/ n/ as in no.

Pp says /p/ as in pet.

Rr says  /r/ as in run.

Ss says /s/ as in sun.

Tt says /t/ as in top.

Vv says /v/ as in van.

Zz says /z/ as in zoo.

To help your students obtain automaticity with these sounds, you can use flash cards, graphic organizers or smart boards.  

Students need to know that both upper and lower case letters make the same sound.

This is a graphic organizer for the sound of letter s.  Students can work together to make graphic organizers for each of the consonants listed above. 

The teacher can use a smart board for the students to practice their letter sounds or students can write their own letters to practice the letter sounds. From left to right, students read the sounds.

On the following pages are the sounds, words, prefixes, suffixes, roots, and spelling rules that are presented in each of the six workbooks.
