Show your students the WHY behind spelling with these movable alphabet sets. Each sound in 216 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.

The 6 groups of words included are:
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.
