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!
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.
Be sure to also get the H Buddy Crew cards to go with the posters, so each child can collect the Word Buddies as they learn them! H Buddy Crew works in tandem with Word Buddy Crew, Blend Buddy Crew, Vowel Buddy Crew, and Alphabet cards
