Fun Hands-on Sh Digraph Activities

Looking for engaging hands-on SH Digraph Activities for your phonics teaching program? Then check these out! You’ll also get a quick guide to explain what digraphs are, how and when to teach them to your kids!

So what is a Digraph?

  • A digraph is a combination of two letters that make a single sound like ch in chick or watch.
  • Digraph sounds are different to the individual sounds of the letters. They cannot be sounded out, which means they need some explicit teaching or they can hinder student reading fluency.
  • They can be made up of vowels or consonants and are taught as part of  phonics programs in Kindergarten, Reception, Preps and First Grade.
  • They are not found just at the beginning of words, they can also be in the middle or make the final sound in words too.
  • They are often confused with ‘Blends’- Digraphs are not blends because each sound of the 2 letters can still be heard. 
  • There is no ‘Ch’ blend- other blends include: bl, br, cl, cr, dr, fl, fr, gl, gr, pl, pr, sc, sl, sm, sp, st, tr
