This multisensory lesson based on the principles of Orton Gillingham, is designed to support students learning the consonant digraph "th." This is the third lesson of the consonant digraphs, sh (there are two available for sh), ch, and not th.

There are many supports included in this lesson including a suggested teacher script for teachers who want to have some "back up" on this important skills.

The packet includes:
Page 1 - Title page
Page 2 - Informational page
Page 3 - Suggested teacher script
Page 4 - Introductory multisensory lesson with visuals
Page 5- Basic word list with additional spaces for students to add additional words they know with "th" included in the word - initial and final positions of a one-syllable word, or syllable.
Page 6 - Phonemic Awareness
Page 7 - Phrases for reading fluency development
Page 8 - Controlled Reading Sentences
Page 9 - Writing Activity
Page 10 - OPTIONAL Word Search - this is only for students who enjoy word searches. It is has been my professional experience students either love word searches who greatly dislike. Usually students with visual and processing challenges do not enjoy word searches.
Pages 11-13 are optional word list review for other consonant digraphs for students who have already learned the specific consonants sh, and ch. Additional ending blend practice is also provided with a final word list to develop reading fluency of one syllable words.

Please contact me if you have any questions, or require more information. I encourage you to look over the other consonant digraph lessons posted. Please contact me at for additional help/support.
