    TS I - Lesson 11 teams/blends?

    Lesson 11 lists these words as having consonant teams...but you can hear the separate sounds in the “teams”. Shouldn’t they be considered blends? I seem to remember double letters also counting as blends in TS II...but maybe I’m remembering wrong.

    Jennifer,

    The final teams nk and ng are actually teams. If you try to sound out bank phonetically (ban k), you will hear that the nk has a special sound because the n actually has the sound /ng/ thus nk becomes /ngk/. We don't want to try to isolate these sounds or analyze them for our pupil. Just pronounce and practice ank, ink, onk, and unk correctly. Now the ck and douible letters are also teams because you do not hear the sound of both letters. They work together to make one sound.

    Does this help?

      Huh. I never noticed the /g/ in there! Thank you for clarifying this!

        It is very slight, but there. Teaching those final teams with an attached vowel is easiest. -ank, -ink, -onk, -unk
