SH - Shushing Shay is part of the H Buddy Crew of digraphs. H Buddy Crew uses visual clues to help new readers understand digraphs and anchor that understanding to memorable cartoon characters! Build words with the H Buddy Crew and my FREE Word Buddy Crew Alphabet Cards
There are six H Buddy Characters:
CH - Chocolate Chip
PH – Phone Phil
SH – Shushing Shay
TH - Thinking Theo
WH – Whistling Whit
TCH – Hatch and Scratch
The character, or Word Buddy, is a visual representation of the digraph. Hints are wrapped into each character’s name, appearance, and identity. The digraph being taught is on a sign that each Word Buddy holds. If the student is able to identify and name the digraphs, then they have learned the concept without realizing it.
Keep students engaged and wanting to learn more as they collect all of the H Budddies!
Perfect for teaching and reviewing one on one, in small groups, or with the whole class. H Buddy cards are the ideal size for little hands to use in learning stations to build words, review, practice, and play word games. The cards are designed to go on a metal binder ring for easy storage and reference.
Be sure to also get the H Buddy posters to go with the cards and hang in your classroom to anchor the learning! H Buddy Crew works in tandem with Word Buddy Crew, Blend Buddy Crew, Vowel Buddy Crew, and Alphabet Cards
