Phonix - The sound letter "S" makes....

Postby Liz_Ryan » Wed Nov 10, 2010 6:41 pm

Hi, I need help from experts out there.

Was watching a programme on phonix lesson with my boy.

It was highlighted that the letter “S” would make an ‘ssssss’ sound when it comes after consonants like “K” “F” “P” “T”.

If “S” were to come after other consonants it would make a ‘zzzz’ sound.

Example :
Lips = lipss*
Puffs = puffss*
Fits = fitss*

Pans = panzz*
Hills = hillzz*

Seeking for advise from experts out there…. Is this correct?.... Thank u….

Was it the "Rock & Learn" Phonix that you watched?

Yes, that's right. Tot it is very good, cos it says sometimes "y" is one of the vowel too. I'm weak in phonic, so after seeing this, still know a bit. The word machine VCD not bad too.

but guess wat, i went to online dictionary earlier..... tried the word "hills", and yes, it's pronounced as "hillz" :)

Hi Liz_Ryan

Actually, I didn't collect them, I've just recently borrowed from the library. My children likes to see VCD, tink the only way to learn. You can borrow them 1st before u really want to buy.

Now on my hand, is the word machine volume 1, my DS like to watch too, especially when they ryhme.

Oh really, so u found the answer, so is zzzzzzzzz sound. Which online dictionary that can sound, can share?

hey Thomas,

Thanx so much for your well-elaborated explanation :-)

The programme that I was referring to was "Rock & Learn", but am not too sure where it is produced though.....

Anyway, really thanx so much for your reply.
