The or thee? That is the question. But it doesn’t really matter if you spell it 
“t – h – e.”

“The” Book

Fold two sheets of paper in half and staple. Children write the word “The” at the top of each page and then draw a picture. What a simple way for beginning readers to feel successful.
*Advanced children could write a sentence using the word “the.”
You could also make an “a” book. 

THE Song

(Tune: “Shortnin’ Bread”)
You can say the
Or you can say the,
But you always have to spell it
T – H – E.

“The” Flip Book

Fold one sheet of paper into eighths. Open and cut up three creased lines to the middle. Fold in half to make flips. Write “the” on the front of each flip and then have children draw pictures or cut out pictures to put under each flip.
