It’s time for th sound words.
After that comes digraph ‘th’ which we will be discussing in detail today.
For the th sound, 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.
‘My book about th words’
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 coloring th sound words. Let the kids color only the ‘th’ sound from each word when they read it.
Next is a picture sort activity worksheet. The kids can color 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 th sound words for kids.
Match the digraph th sound words to the right picture.
Read the word bank and write the digraph th sound words.
Cut the ‘th’ word tiles and sort them. There are words that begin with th and those that end with th. Sort them and stick them in the correct box.
The next worksheet has pictures and scrambled words. Unscramble the words and form logical sentences. 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 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 th sentence with a word and write it e.g. The tot has a bath in the tub.

I am also sharing another pack with you which is ‘My book about th words.’
Circle the pictures with ‘th sound’ on page 2. The pictures are thorn, wheel, teeth, thread, throne, thigh, thirsty, throw, thermometer and turtle. On page 3, write ‘th’ and the words with ‘th sound.’
The instructions to print are mentioned in the book. This book requires only 2 sheets to form an A5 size (approximately) book. The sheets will be printed on both sides. All the pages are numbered so there will not be any confusion.
In case, you have to print on both sides manually, print pages 1 and 8 and pages 6 and 3 first. On the reverse of pages 1 and 8, print pages 2 and 3. On the reverse of pages 6 and 3, print pages 4 and 5.
Since the print will be on both sides, use a thicker sheet.
On the next two pages, children have to frame sentences using the words given. A sentence begins with a capital letter. This rule will help children understand the first word of the sentence. Sentences end with a period or full stop or question mark or exclamation mark. This will make punctuation rules clear and also help children frame sentences. Do not forget to color the pictures.
The last two pages are for writing sentences. Children have to write sentences with ‘th sound words’ whose pictures have been provided. The ‘th sound words‘ are the same that the children have traced on page 3.
This book can be covered over a period of three-five days. I usually like to cover this over a period of three days, two pages each day.
