This is a set of 27 strips with 6 ‘digraph’ pictures on each one. The digraph used are ‘sh’, ‘ch’, ‘th’, ‘wh’, and ‘ck’. There are 8 strips using the digraphs ‘sh’, ‘ch’, ‘th’, and ‘wh’. Seven strips use only the ‘ck’ digraph. One strip uses the digraphs with a long vowel and silent ‘e’. Three strips use just the ‘sh’ digraph. One strip uses the ‘th’ digraph only. Two strips use only the ‘ch’ digraph. Five strips use all of the 5 digraphs. These strips are great for literacy stations, intervention teachers, or for an activity to do while you are in a guided reading group.
Print the segmenting strips on card stock and laminate them.
Give children a segmenting strip. They will segment each word In order to spell it. A recording sheet is included to spell the words on. A section is added to the bottom of each sheet to use for differentiation. The children will pick a word and use it in a sentence in this section. If this isn’t needed, just cut the section off. If some children aren’t ready to spell, they can record the beginning sound, medial sound, or the final sound. There is a number on each segmenting strip to record on the recording sheet.
Instead of using the recording sheet, the children can spell the words on a whiteboard or use magnetic letters on a magnetic board.
