"Thuh" 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.

Anybody in Springfield, IL, want a free concert on November 1st?  I'm going to be doing a workshop there on 11/2 and my flight gets in early enough to sing with some Title 1 children on the 1st.  I mentioned this several weeks ago and I have concerts lined up in San Antonio and Oklahoma City, but nobody's emailed ( yet from Springfield.  Just give me a shout if you want to sing, dance, and have some fun!!!
