This set of consonant digraph read and write the room centers includes 55 word cards with corresponding pictures that give meaning to the words as students decode, sort, and write them. This makes them great vocabulary builders for all students, and especially for those learning English as a second language.
Five word cards are included for each of the following digraphs: sh, ch, wh, kn, ph, wr, ng. Eight word cards with words ending in digraph ck are included, along with eight featuring words ending in -ke (CVCe pattern). This last set can be sorted and compared with words ending in ck.
These cards can be used in a variety of ways. In my own second grade classroom, I use them during my small group center rotations at the beginning of the week, when the weekly phonics and spelling skill is still new. I tape the cards around the classroom, give each student in the center group a clipboard, and send them on a silent scavenger hunt to find, read, and write each word on their recording sheets. There is also space at the bottom of each recording sheet for students to practice writing a sentence using two of the words. This activity could also be done as a whole-class scoot game.
Recording sheets are also included. Students will use the recording sheets to sort words by digraph. Eight different sorting options are included. All recording sheet options are offered with and without handwriting lines. Choose those that best meet the needs of your students.
