G Says /J/ Before E, I and Y!

Have you ever used this spelling rule in your classroom to help your students remember when the letter G makes a hard or soft sound?

In English, one letter can represent multiple sounds. The letter G can make a /g/ sound, as in the word ‘gold’. It can also make a /j/ sound, as in the word ‘gel’. It takes a lot of exposure and repeated practice for our youngest students to know when each sound is being made.

This worksheet has been designed to help your students identify when the letter G is making a hard sound and when it is making a soft sound. It contains 11 examples of words containing the letter G. A visual representation of the word is also provided. Students must identify whether the letter G is saying /g/ or /j/, then circle the correct choice. An answer sheet is also provided.

In addition to individual student work time, use this worksheet as a:

Challenge students who already understand the concept to compile lists of words that contain the hard and soft G sound.

Support students who need help understanding the concepts by providing visual reminders, such as a classroom poster or anchor chart.
