Letter Quiz and Double "L" Words

Welcome back to Read Not Guess. Today we’re going to do a letter quiz and work on some double “L” words.


Remember that we’re going to focus on the sounds the letters make. Both parent and child will need to be able to see the screen.


Ok, let’s get started.


Letter Quiz


We’ve worked through almost all the letters now, so let’s check for understanding. Ask your child to say the correct sounds as they point to the letters:


w

h

i

p

e

d

f


Did they get them right? If not, have them keep trying until they say the sound clearly and cleanly.


Word Practice


Now we’re going to work on “blending” letter sounds into words. Your child can start slowly by saying each sound individually, but each time, they should try to say it just a bit faster.


Ask your child to say the correct sounds as they point to the letters:


i ll

ill


Do they know the meaning of the word “ill?” (It’s another word for sick.)


Did they sound it out correctly? If they are reading it as "lll-luh," point out their mistake and have them do it again.


Now:


h i ll

h ill

hill

And:

p i ll

p ill

pill


And:

f i ll

f ill

fill

Now let’s try a few with the “ell” ending:


f e ll

f ell

fell


And:


s e ll

s ell

sell

And:


b e ll

b ell

bell


The same pattern also holds for when a word ends with a double "s" sound. Have them try a couple of those:


l e ss

l ess

less


And:


m i ss

m iss

miss


Hard Word Challenge


If you think your child is ready, see if they can read this word:


s p i ll

sp ill

spill


If they read it smoothly, great! If they stumble, have them re-read it another time or two to get it right.


That’s it for today. We’ll see you next time.
