  • Write the word "cat" on the board. Tell students that you can hear all the sounds in this word, so it's able to be stretched out. Model how to stretch out the sounds in the word "cat."
  • Now write the word "the" on the board. Try to stretch out the sounds in the word "the." Ask students if the sounds you said made a word. Tell students that the word on the board is "the," but it can't be stretched out. Explain that some words we just have to memorize, or learn by sight. These words are called sight words.
