th sound worksheets

Did you know that the letter ‘th’ actually makes two sounds? They do, and there are names for the two different sounds. The first “th” sound we are going to look at is called voiced.

Let’s try this experiment. Place your hand on your throat and say the following words:

  • There
  • Then
  • Mother
  • With

Did you feel some vibration? That’s your voicebox, or larynx, making the “th”. When we use our larynx to the make the “th” sound it is called voiced.

th sound practice worksheets

Now let’s try that experiment again. Place your hand on your throat and read out loud these words.

  • Bath
  • Think
  • There
  • North

What did you notice? You probably noticed that you are still making the “th” sound by placing your tongue on your teeth, but that you did not feel any vibrations!

When our larynx is not used to make the “th” sound, this is called unvoiced.

Why voiced and unvoiced “th” sounds?

If you have a struggling reader like I do, you will find that things don’t just come naturally. My oldest two could immediately sound out “th” words and apply the right sound. But now with a struggling reader, every concept most be taught. Our sweet little readers need to know what to do if the “th” sound they used doesn’t make a word they know.

It is important for them to understand that there is another option and they can try again with a different sound…..and this time get a word they know!

Th Worksheet

Now that we understand the difference in “th” sounds, it is time for our little ones to get some practice reading these words. And these “th” sentence strips are a perfect way to do this.

    1. First, print off the free th worksheets pages you want to use on card stock paper.
  1. Next, cut them out.
  2. Now punch a hole at the top left corner of the strips and place a ring in the hole.
  3. Finally, gather up some crayons or a type of marker.

th digraph worksheets

Now it is time to read the th worksheets pdf. Almost all the sentences use simple CVC (short vowel) words and easy sight words like “the” and “is”. They were purposely created this way so that our beginner readers can focus on reading “th” words.

The activity is simple. Have your child read the sentence and then cover up the picture that best matches what they read. There is a sentence that uses the word than in it.

For this example, ask the child which one is bigger and let them cover up that picture. Reading “th” words is a very important skill, and I hope this activity helps your little ones get in the practice that they need.
