Select Your Phonic Pack:


th - digraph

NB - An interesting extra: I have posted a booklet, ‘The Smith Family’, which emphasises the ‘th’ digraph.
This booklet (written for emerging readers) can be found at the end of all the lessons and certificates for Phonic Pack 2.
Printing off and making this booklet with your child would be most beneficial at the end of Lesson Twenty One which covers the ‘th’ sound.
Give your child as much help as needed to enjoy and successfully complete the booklet.

Digraph 'th' - Lesson 21 page 1 - Phonic Pack 2.


My name is . .
Read ‘old’ words from Lesson Twenty.

Lesson Twenty One (‘th’ as in moth.)
Note to tutor: The next six lessons will introduce digraphs. A digraph is a pair of letters that represent a single speech sound. The digraph for Lesson Twenty One is ‘th’. Each digraph has a ‘chant’ eg th as in moth. When introducing a digraph to your child you say the name of the letters, followed by the sound. e.g. t (tee) and h (aitch) together, say ‘th’
(the sound) as in moth.

Pointing to the caption under the moth –
say to your child “t (tee) and h (aitch) together say ‘th’ as in moth.”
Then, pointing to the word ‘moth’, sound out the word m-o-th, and then blend into the word moth.

Printing Instructions


Digraph 'th' - Lesson 21 page 2 - Phonic Pack 2.


1. Sound out all the words on the left side of the moth, like this:
m-o-th, moth th-u-mb, thumb (what is special about
the word ‘thumb’? It has a silent ‘b’ at
at the end. You do not sound the ‘b’)
th-i-n, thin m-a-th-s, maths cl-o-th, cloth
th-i-ck, thick

2. Sound out all the words on the right side of the moth,
like this:
th-e-m, them th-a-n, than th-a-t, that
th-i-s, this th-e-n, then

3. Here is a hard question!!!!! Can you notice any difference between the ‘th’ sound in the words on the left, compared to the ‘th’ sound in the words on the right?

Note to tutor: Ask your child to listen very carefully while you say the words again. The ‘th’ sound in the words on the left is a soft ‘th’ sound. The ‘th’ sound in the words on the right is a hard ‘th’ sound. Say the words to your child a couple of times and if he/she does not hear the difference, explain it to him/her and move on. The difference is subtle and good if your child can hear it, but it does not matter if he/she finds it too difficult. He/she will still recognise the words and read them correctly when reading a text.

4. Discuss the meaning of each word with your tutor.

5. Find the flash card for ‘th as in moth’ and put it into the pile of sounds you are learning. Now you have ‘ck as in duck’ and ‘th as in moth’.
Practise them every day and when you know them put them into a pile of sounds you know.

6. Cut along the dotted lines and glue the moth into your scrapbook.

Good question.

There is no rule for when we use a hard 'th' or a soft 'th' when we are speaking.

You may find the following site interesting. It explains how the sounds evolved.
