Digraph "th"

In this video, students practice identifying words with the voiced and unvoiced “th” sound.

The teacher explains that a digraph is two letters that when spoken together make one sound. The “th” digraph is tricky because it makes a “voiced” and “unvoiced” sound. When the “th” is “voiced” the sound is made with the vocal cords. If you place your hand on your throat, you can feel the vibration there. If the “th” is unvoiced, then the air when the sound is spoken only is felt in the mouth. It is a softer sound.

To complete the first part of the worksheet, the teacher identifies words with the voiced “th” sound. In the second part of the worksheet the teacher identifies words that have the unvoiced “th” sound. Examples of the voiced “th” sound include they and mother. Examples of the unvoiced “th” sound are teeth and path.

Learning the difference between the voiced and unvoiced “th” sound is challenging. Improve your students’ understanding of this digraph with this phonics video.

Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.

Such a great app!
This was a really fun way to get my kids to practice their math. I usually struggle to get them into it and Kids Academy makes it easy.
