What to do

  1. Write the letters sh on the board, make them at lest a foot tall. Alternatively, use a letter card large enough for the whole group to see easily.
  2. Some letters stick together, so they make one sound even though they are two letters. Here are two letters that stick together. The sound for these letters is /shh/. When you say /sh/. it's like your telling someone to be quiet because the baby is asleep: /shh/. What's the sound?
  3. Look for students who are not saying the sound. Ask them: What's the sound? Look for students who are not saying the sound
