Sing along syllabic song

You can understand better, letter combination
          singing this  syllabic song.

Sing Along THE CHAMPIONS from FLYKIT on Vimeo.

                                Now read the song slowly.
                       You could try it with every consonant.

The word "consonant" means "sounding  with".
 The consonant letter need a nearby vowel.
  So consonant cannot form words by himself.

Consonants and vowels make syllabes.
 One or more syllabes make words.
  They are like pieces of a puzzle.

 common words in ABC Fast Phonics
