Sample a new way to approach spelling with a movable alphabet, and see how easy and cost-effective it can be to print resources as photos! These sorts are amazing, because each sound in the words is represented by one card, regardless of how many letters are used to make that sound!

These color-coded files are designed for photo-printing.

Sample includes:
1. 6 words
2. Answer Key
3. Envelope Label
(7 files total.)

Sample words are the YELLOW set from the group MIXED DIGRAPHS 1


DESCRIPTION OF THE FULL PRODUCT (which can be found here):

The 216 words in this product are divided into 6 groups:
1. Consonant Digraphs
2. CVe “Magic E” Words
3. Vowel Teams
4. R-Controlled Vowels
5. Mixed Digraphs 1
6 Mixed Digraphs 2

Each group has 36 words, for a total of 216 words. Answer keys are included so students can check their own work.

Digraphs are the hardest part about learning to read and write the English language. We expect sounds and letters to have a one-to-one correspondence: for each sound in a word, there will be one matching letter. When this DOESN'T happen (as with most words in English), it can get really confusing.

Some students have a really hard time learning to recognize those multi-letter groups that represent one sound. By using digraphs in the form of a movable alphabet, students can learn to see where digraphs occur in words. These pieces make it clear how words are spelled, and offer that one-to-one correspondence that beginning readers expect. Rather than trying to spell a word one letter at a time, they are given one spelling piece for each sound in a word.
