Can you make a word using only these sounds?

/C/ /A/ /T/

Sound out each letter carefully:

  • make the sound /c/
  • make the sound /a/
  • make the sound /t/

Now put all the sounds together:

  • Cat! Good job!

When you put all the sounds together, you say the word "cat." In this lesson, you will practice listening to sounds and putting the sounds together to form words.

Now that you watched the video and saw how blending sounds together make words, you are all set to try blending more sounds!
