I am going to say all the sounds I hear in a word. I want you to tell me the word that you hear when you put these sounds together. You say it fast. Let me show you.
If I say /p/ /i/ /g/ the word is . . .pig.
Now try to put the sounds together with me. Say it fast. If I say /c/ /a/ /t/ What word do you say? Yes, the word is . . . cat.
Listen to the sounds and tell me the word those sounds make.
