This is an activity that I use for small group literacy rotations in my kindergarten class to practice digraphs.
To Make: Print pages 2-7 on cardstock. Cut out the shells and buckets (or cut bucket pages in half) and laminate.
To Play: Children work individually, in pairs, or in groups to match the digraphs on the shells to the matching digraph on the sand buckets.
The pictures for the digraphs include: white, shark, chicken, cheese, whale, chalk, shoes, shopping, ship, wheelbarrow, shovel, sheep, paintbrush, thing, thought, thanksgiving, thermometer, tooth, chair, three, chest, cheerleader, chocolate, and cherries.
