What? Who? Where?

Welcome back to Read Not Guess. Today we’re going to work on questions with the “wh” sound.


Both parent and child will need to be able to see the screen.


Let’s get started.


The Word "What"


The word “what” is irregular. It looks like it should rhyme with "cat," but it actually rhymes with "hut" or "cut."


It's an important word for your kids to be able to read, so have them say the word “what” just a little bit louder each time they read the word, as if they can’t hear you:


what?


what?


What?!


Now have them read it in a few sentences:


What is this?


What are you doing?


What did Grandpa just say?


If they read these smoothly, great! If they stumble, have them keep practicing.


The Word "Who"


The word “who” is also irregular. It rhymes with "two" or "shoe."


Have your kid read the word "who" just a little bit louder each time they read the word, as if they are trying to solve a mystery:


who?


who?


Who?!


Now have them read it in a few sentences:


Who did it?


Who took my present?


Who will bring me a new one?


Did they get them right? If not, ask them to keep practicing.


The Word "Where"


The word “where” rhymes with "there" or "fair."


Have your child read the word "where" just a little bit louder each time they see the word, as if they can’t find one of their favorite toys:


where?


where?


Where?!


Now have them try reading it in a few sentences:


Where is it?


Where did it go?


Where did you put my book?


That’s it for today. We’ll see you next time.
