*A sibilant sound is one in which your tongue is near the top of your mouth—air pushes through and you make a hissing sound

8. ___Go back to the Fighting for Fernndo script (if you lost the script OR missed class, click here for it) and look at all of the verbs your wrote down--verbs that end in the letter 's' (Don't worry about the words in parenthesis that describe what is happening--ONLY the dialogue, that is, what people are saying). 

Organize the verbs into 3 groups. Match the final sound to one of the 3 categories. Write each one down where it belongs. 

9. ___Check yourself by pronouncing each of the words--make sure they're in the correct column. 

 

10___Have a happy Thanksgiving!
