Why Lesson Planet?
First graders discuss how t and h together make one sound and then make the sound while examining the mouth movement associated with it. They listen for the sounds in sentences that are read to them before making words with the Elkonin letterboxes. Next, they listen to and read the short book "Moth and Frog Race," by Alice K. Kunka, and write all the /th/ words. Finally, they complete a picture page assessment worksheet.
