The primary purpose of these cards is for students to apply their knowledge of digraphs and blend these sounds in order to make words.
Slide the cards into an envelope with one end cut off. Pull out one phoneme at a time, as students “see and say” each sound. At the end of the word, students should blend and “guess” the word before revealing the picture.
This 60 card set includes 21 "sh" words, 19 "ch" words, 11 "th" words, 5 "wh" words, and 3 "ph" words. Most words include short vowels, while a few contain long vowel teams, diphthongs, and r-controlled vowels. Digraphs can be found as initial or ending sounds.
Use these cards for guided reading, word study time, or individual instruction. Students have lots of fun "guessing" if they have blended correctly! You may even turn it into a game to earn points! Happy reading!
