The WH Sound | Phonics Video | Scratch Garden


Hi. I LOVE SOUNDS! Like (sound), (sound),
and even (sound). Let’s look at this sound! This sound has two letters. W. And H. We all
know that W says wwwww, and H says hhhhh. But when we put them together, WH say (strange sound). Just kidding! Actually, when we put them together, the H becomes silent. That
means that it makes no sound at all. I’m serious. So… even if we throw tiny bananas
at H and H gets angry and yells at us we won’t hear anything! Watch! Isn’t English just so silly! So… if the H is silent, W and H say exactly what the W says: WH. wh wh wh wh wh Many words start with the W and H, the WH
sound. For example: Wheel
Whale I don’t want to eat my vegetables. Whining Can you think of a word that starts with the
WH sound? Ready… GO! Why are you so loud??? Please WHISPER! TIMES UP! OK, don’t forget the W, H, WH sound, which again, is really just the W sound. Until next time (strange sound). Whoa!
Whoa!! Whoa!!! Why?

  1. I love your videos and was excited to show this one to my kids to complement what they are learning in reading instruction but you need to present both sounds ‘wh’ makes. Sometimes it makes the ‘w’ sound sometimes the “windy h” sound like in “white” “whisper” “who”. This video needs a make over or part 2.
    Would love to see a “th” video but don’t make this same mistake “th” has a voiced and unvoiced sounds please teach both. (Thin v. They)

  2. I disliked the video because it is wrong. I leaned at an early age in elementary school that the "wh" has a certain blow of air to it when it is said correctly. For example, the word "who".

  3. This is new. In the old days, we were taught the blowing 'wh' sound, so that witch & which sounded completely different.

  4. Since when is the H silent? "Wh" is pronounced [HW]. Who changed this? No wonder some of my younger students can't spell correctly! Videos like this are teaching them incorrect pronunciations!
