Digraph Fun and a Freebie

We have been learning about digraphs.  Of course we started with the big four - sh, th, wh, and ch.  Having games and hands-on manipulatives have made this so much more fun.

(Click on the picture to see this unit in our TpT store.)

After we have taught the lessons in small group, we put these activities in our literacy centers.

The top picture shows a flip book where the children cut out digraph pictures and paste the under the correct flaps. 

The next two pictures show the students building words with magnetic letters and recording them.



One of the activities our kids really liked was Spin a Digraph, shown in the next picture.
The last activity pictured is my favorite!  The ever popular clip-it cards.
There are several more center and worksheet activities included in this unit!  Click the picture below to get your freebie!
