Clap for Sounds: Have children focus on the consonant cluster /cl/ as in clock. Tell them you are going to read a list of words, and they are to clap only when they hear /cl/ at the beginning of the word. Say these words: clip, dock, clown, like, close, class, plant. Follow the same procedure for words that begin with /str/ as in struck. Then isolate the /ck/ sound at the end of these words and repeat the procedure. Distribute the reproducible version of the nursery rhyme and have children circle the clusters cl, str, and ck!
