Words beginning s-, sc-, c-, w-, wh-

     The most helpful part of a word is the start. If you can work out the first syllable then you stand a good chance of finding the word in a dictionary. Always listen to it carefully. But sometimes there are different ways of writing the first sound.   Here are some examples.
    1. Use your dictionary to find words starting with the same
    letter and fill in the spaces. 

    Three ways of writing the sound "s" as in sickness
    suddenly





    certainly





    scenery





     
    Two ways of writing the sound "w" as in wish
    weather





    whether





     
    2. Make sure that you know the difference between
    "weather" and "whether".
    Look them up in the dictionary if you're not sure.
    Then fill in the gaps in the following sentences:
    I'm not sure                         we'll go camping this weekend. 
    A lot will depend on the                       .

    3. Now memorize the focus words and test yourself on them.
