The materials included in this product focus on words with the following consonant digraphs: ch, sh, th, wh, ph, -ck.

The following are brief descriptions of the materials provided in this product for EACH consonant digraph:

* Word cards: Prereading practice for students who need support blending words with digraphs. Provide a tactile experience by having students tap the touch-points as they read. These words are featured in the passage included.

* Phrase strips: Help students build fluency reading words with digraphs within phrases. These phrases are featured in the passage included.

* A decodable passage that corresponds to each consonant digraph: The student copy may be used for independent student reading. Have students identify words containing digraphs within the passage prior to reading.

* Pyramid reading cards: help students build fluency with sentence structure prior to reading. The pyramids may be used independently per student or in a small group setting. They are numbered for convenient organization.

* Teacher copy of the passage: fluency assessment tool to monitor student progress.

* Extra word cards and phrase strips: for extended practice building fluency with digraphs.

NOTE: Throughout this product, I utilized a font that is supportive for children with dyslexia, so these materials should be conducive to students who may display dyslexic characteristics.

*** UPDATE: This file has been revised to include TWO versions: The first version contains with the font supportive of children with dyslexia. The second version (beginning on page 70) contains the Verdana font, which is also proven to be a supportive font for dyslexic readers. This provides you with options, should your computer/printer not read the dyslexic font. ***
