SplashLearn - The complete Pre-K - Grade 5 Math & ELA Learning Program Built for Your Child
Sometimes kids pronounce the letter"D" instead of the soft G. Helping them understand the rules for identifying the soft G sounds can easily decode the most complex words. SplashLearn's games on words with soft G offer some fun ways to master the soft G sound.
Before you introduce the soft and hard G sounds, your readers should be aware of the individual sounds of all the letters. A good basic understanding of letter sounds will make their learning step out in the right direction.
The foremost thing to teach the soft G word sounds is to let the kids understand what it is. Mostly, the sound of g depends upon the letter it is followed with. When the letter g is followed with "e," "i," or "y," you get a soft G sound. When pronouncing, the kids need to replace the "g" sound with "j."
When you are teaching your kids at any grade, write the words and highlight the sound in a different color. Show them the lip and the tongue movement while speaking that particular sound. Get a list of words with a soft "g" sound.
Keep Practicing, from Shorter Syllables to Longer
Participate actively in your little rockstar’s reading experience. With SplashLearn's best interactive games, you start to practice the sound with much ease. Later, your kids will identify the range of words that have the soft g sounds. Post that, they can create their own words with the same sound.
Start with small words with a syllable or two, such as gel, gem, or cage, and then move to large words or words with two Gs, which can help them understand better. For example, the word "language" or "gigantic."
Nothing can be more interesting than having an educational yet fun learning experience with games that are curriculum-aligned and follow the Common Core Standards. SplashLearn's online games not only keep kids engaged but even help them increase their vocabulary.
