If your students like my Letter Punch activity, they'll love this one as well!
Diagraph punch is fun way to practice hearing and identifying those tricky diagraphs. Students use hole punches to show whether words begin or end with a given diagraph sound. There are also several pages where students decide which letter/diagraph a word starts with. This is great phonemic awareness practice and would be a great addition to an ELA workshop or literacy stations.
Three different activities are included:
-Does the sound start with just the letter or the diagraph? (s or sh, t or th, c or ch)
-Which diagraph does the word start with? (th or ch, wh or sh)
-Does the word begin or end with the diagraph (one page each for sh, th, and ch)
My students love this activity! They enjoy being able to use hole punches and I love that they are strengthening hand muscles while practicing phonics.
