Learning Objective

Student read, write, and spell words and sentences with initial digraphs and short vowels.


These initial digraphs worksheets are perfect for your phonics word work centers. They focus on initial digraphs with short vowels and include 87 NO PREP printables to practice initial digraphs.

The digraphs in this set of phonics worksheets include: SH, CH, TH, and WH. PH is not included. The digraphs are mixed up on most worksheets (ie: there is no isolated practice of just one digraph at a time).

Also included are phonemic awareness worksheets with pictures only for words with phonics patterns beyond this level (like blends, VCE, and other vowel teams).

This product aligns with my Blending Cards and Phonics Worksheets for CVC Short Vowels. For more information about the blending cards, see this blog post.

Blending cues (dots to segment the word, dotted lines to blend the word, and a large arrow to "read it fast") are included on many of the pages. Students can use the blending cues to read the word, then do the work on the worksheets.

These can also be printed at a reduced size and can be used for interactive notebooks.

There are 21 worksheet templates with multiple versions of most templates within each section.

The 21 templates are:

→ Color the Picture

→ Circle the Same Word

→ Read, Trace, Write

→ Read, Write, Color

→ Spell & Write
