18.2 The Slow-Fast Game

In this curriculum, we treat the /h/ sound as a stop phoneme, though it could be called a continuous fricative.  It is useful to teach it as a stop phoneme because it provides a gentler on-ramp to learning how to read words that begin with stop sounds.  That is why, later in the curriculum, the first word we ask students to read that begins with a stop sound is ‘hat.’
