Letter G Worksheet For Kids
The Letter G is an unreliable letter. It makes the “guh” (hard g – /g/ sound) as in garden or dog or the “juh” (soft g – /j/ sound) as in giraffe.
When combined with the letter “d”, a grapheme is formed which sounds like /j/ (as in ledger)
G is part of the ‘gh’ digraph which can make the /g/ sound as in ghost or the /f/ sound as in cough.
G is part of the ‘ng’ digraph which can make the hard sound as in finger, the soft sound as in change, or the combined sound (the most common) as in sing. The difference in these pronunciations is minor, but important (to see why, try pronouncing singer like you would finger).
G is sometimes silent as in gnat or gnaw.
When G is followed by ‘e’ or ‘i’ it sometimes has the soft sound /j/ (as in gem or giraffe).
