Reflection: High Expectations Introducing Practice with TH and TH! - Section 1: Why this Lesson?


Although our standards do not specifically say anything about the /TH/ digraph, first grade standards do talk about having a mastery of the sound-spelling correspondences of digraphs.  It is important that we plan vertically in order to plan our students for what they are going to face once they leave us; nevertheless, we also need to provide our students with as many tools as possible to do solid work with us!  I think it is important that our students know that /TH/ can make two sounds- this will support students with their reading and their writing.  When students know both of the sounds that this digraph makes, their writing and reading can become more fluent and accurate!

  Why are the two forms of /TH/ so important?
