This ph, wr, ng, and kn digraph resource includes fun and engaging activities to help your students practice spelling and building words with beginning and ending digraphs. The activities focus on CCVC and CVCC words, with a few more challenging spelling patterns also included. These activities work well as center activities in first and second grade.
Students will build the following words: fang, hang, lung, wing, ring, sing, king, sting, knife, knit, knot, knob, knock, wreck, write, wrap, wrist, wren, wrench, phone, graph, photo, trophy, dolphin
The following activities are included:
• Digraph Puzzles
: Students look at the picture and match the digraph and word ending or beginning to build the word. Several recording sheet options and 24 puzzles are included. If you do not wish to use the recording sheet, you can make this activity self-checking by writing the word on the back.
• Digraph See, Build, Write Printables
: Students cut and paste letters from the bottom of the page to build a word matching the picture shown and write the word. Each printable page contains three words to build and write. Five unique pages are included. Just print and go!
• Digraph Word Building Mats
: Students take a half-page card, look at the picture, and build the word. Sound boxes are provided. Magnet letters work well for this activity, but it can also be done as a write-and-wipe activity using dry erase markers on laminated cards. Several recording sheet options are included. Again, if you do not wish to use the recording sheet, you can make this activity self-checking by writing the word on the back of the card. I recommend going over the pictures as a whole group before doing this as an independent center activity.
