This Digraph Read & Clip set includes 42 sh, th, ch, and wh digraph word cards with simple spellings that make them perfect for beginning readers! These are great as a word work center or early finisher activity. Students simply read the word on each card and use a clothespin to clip the picture that matches the word.
This activity is easy to prep! Just print, laminate, and cut each page in half. You can easily add or remove cards to fit the needs of each group of students. Choose cards featuring just one digraph at a time, or a mix of digraphs for more of a challenge. A few cards also include beginning and ending blends and/or CVCe spelling patterns. These are great for those students who are ready to begin to sound out more difficult words, or leave them out if your students are not yet ready to tackle these patterns.
I like to put a colored dot on the back of each card behind the correct picture so students can simply flip the card over to check their work.
Need an exit slip to quickly assess how your students are doing with this skill? Just print either of the two read-and-match pages included at the end of this resource.
Cards for the following words are included:
• Sh: shed, ship, shell, shelf, fish, bush, rash, dish, wash, wish, cash, trash, brush, hush, shake, shape
• Th: thin, three, think, bath, moth, math, sloth, path
• Ch: chop, chat, chip, chin, chap, chimp, chick, inch, bench, lunch
• Wh: whip, whiff, whisk, white, which, whale, whizz, whack
I use this activity as an independent center for my second grade students who are just beginning to learn English and for my Special Education inclusion students who are beginning readers.
These cards also help to meet the following Common Core Standard for students in First Grade:
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RF.1.3.A: Know the spelling-sound correspondences for common consonant digraphs.
