Learning to Read Phonics Song: Sound Pairs
Use this song to study sound pairs. Each sound pair has a sound created
from about the same place (the position of the tongue or lips is the
same). The first letter in each pair
has a soft or a vibrating sound. The second letter has a harsher (more
popped) or voiceless (non-vibrating sound). The letter "Th" can be
pronounced smoothly, as in "the" or with a popped sound, as in "think."
A few sounds overlap. T is often a light D sound between vowel sounds,
as in "water" and "bottle." S is sometimes a light Z sound in common words like "is," "has" and "his."
