Introducing Digraph ‘th’
It’s time for digraph th sound words.
We usually begin with digraph ‘sh.’
Then we move on to digraph ‘ch
After that comes digraph ‘th’ which we will be discussing in detail today.
For the th sound words, put the tongue between the teeth and simultaneously blow the air out. Try doing this without and then with voice.
The digraph ‘th’ makes two sounds, voiced and unvoiced. ‘Th’ is pronounced with voice is certain words like the, this,that, these, their, they, those, then them, feather, brother etc.
For today, we will be covering the more common unvoiced ‘th’ sound which can be found in words like bath, moth,sloth, froth, thick, thin, theme, cloth, pith etc.
The first worksheet is reading and colouring th sound words. Let the kids colour only the ‘th’ sound from each word when they read it.
Next is a picture sort activity worksheet. The kids can colour the pictures first as we discuss what is on the pictures. Cut the pictures.
Now, stick the pictures under the right word.
Cut the letter tiles and spell the digraph ‘th’ words.
Match the digraph ‘th’ words to the right picture.
Read the word bank and write the digraph ‘th’ words.
Let’s cut the ‘th’ word tiles and sort them. Sort the tiles for words that begin with ‘th’ and words that end with ‘th.’
Next worksheet has pictures and scrambled words. Unscramble the words and form a meaningful sentence. Please tell our little learners about basic punctuation. Sentences begin with a capital letter and end with a period (full stop). It will also make the unscrambling process easier since two words(first and last of the sentence) would already be sorted.
Build the ‘th’ words by joining the strips and paste them in the notebook. Cut along the lines. you will get 6 words along with pictures. Now, cut along the dotted lines. Give your child 3 strips for the first word e.g. bath. Let the child form the picture and read the word. stick the word in the notebook and form a simple sentence with a word and write it e.g. The tot has a bath in the tub.
