This is over 200 pages of hard c vs soft c download! :)
Day 1: Sort out the picture cards (the set without the words) and purely listen for hard c vs. soft c. Sample sentence frame is: “The word _______ has the ________ sound like ____.” (ex: The word clip has the hard c sound like /k/ cat.
Please print out the hard c vs. soft c poster (or recreate one that’s bigger).
Day 2: Put students in collaborative group to sort out the picture cards without the words the hard c vs. soft c. Independent worksheet of picture sorting where they have to cut & glue.
Day 3: In a whole group setting, focus only on the hard c first, Show the spelling of each picture card that has the hard c sound. Have students look for the similarities (hard c is followed by letters ‘a’, ‘o’, ‘r’,)
Day 4: Whole group setting, focus on the soft c this time. Show the spelling of each picture card that has the soft c sound. Have students look for the similarities of how the word is spelled (soft c is followed by ‘e’, ‘i’, or ‘y’).
Day 5: At this time, you can group students sort out the picture cards with the words between the hard c and soft c. For students that need help, continue using the sentence frame from Day 1. For students that need a challenge, have students notice on the letters only and try to say the word.
**There are ton of hard c and soft c words, but I recommend using the first 4 pages of picture sorts to teach. Use the rest if you need more examples.
