Why Lesson Planet?
Students study the /d/ sound by making the sound and determining where their tongue is when the make it. They repeat a tongue twister while emphasizing the /d/ sounds. Next, they identify the sound in words as the teacher uses a puppet as a prop to say the words. Next, they write the letter and listen for the /d/ sound in a story which is read aloud. For an assessment, they complete a picture page worksheet.
