Young learners are introduced to the digraph th with the lesson plan, Hungry for the Digraph Th. Digraphs are the combinations of two letters that make one sound. In this lesson children will listen to The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle and identify the words that begin with the th sound such as the, that, and then. Ideal for kindergarteners and first graders, kids will learn to segment these words, breaking them down into their individual sounds. This will help strengthen their phonological awareness, an important skill to becoming strong readers.
Students will be able to identify and build common words beginning with the digraph "th".
