There are 2 sounds the digraph th makes, which are th like in thumb and think and also the th in mother/fathat/this or that. For both digraph th sounds, I have the digraph th book list to help children learn both of the sounds. Have fun and enjoy the books.
Digraph Th Book List
The story of a train filled with toys and gifts for little boys and girls that breaks down before reaching the children. After asking several passing trains for help over the hill, a little blue train agrees to help the stranded toys. Even though she is small, the blue train tries her best to bring the toys to the children on the other side of the hill.
I think I can, I think I can: Emphasize the th sound in “think”. This is always a good story for talking about how if you work hard, you can achieve anything that you want to.
The possibilities are endless in Dr. Seuss’s classic Beginner Book! Young readers will delight in Oh, the Thinks You Can Think! which celebrates the imagination and encourages young readers to think . . . about thinking! “Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the Thinks you can think up if only you try.”
Another book to emphasize the “th” in think. This is a good book to talk about creative writing and to write some fun stories. Do the Fairy Tale Writing Prompts (included)
A loud clap of thunder booms, and rattles the windows of Grandma’s old farmhouse. “This is Thunder Cake baking weather,” calls Grandma, as she and her granddaughter hurry to gather the ingredients around the farm. A real Thunder Cake must reach the oven before the storm arrives. But the list of ingredients is long and not easy to find . . . and the storm is coming closer all the time!
This is a good book for story sequencing (making a cake), but also a good book for writing prompts and what we do when we are scared or when it is raining. You can emphasize the th in thunder, but you can also emphasize the th in weather. Do the Thunder Cake Activities (included)
A madcap band of dancing, prancing monkeys explain hands, fingers, and thumbs to beginning readers. A great chance to get familiar with the hard th in thumb.
