Are your students learning about digraphs? A digraph is two letters that make one sound. The fact that each letter doesn’t say a sound can be really confusing to students. For example, we know the /c/ sound, as in cat, and the /h/ sound, as in hat, but together the -ch combination, or digraph, makes one new sound, /ch/ as in chair.
Here is a fun coloring activity you can do to help students work on digraphs!
There are 9 pictures in this free printable. As students read each word, they will find the digraph and color that part of the picture while following the color key at the bottom of the printable.
The digraphs in this printable include the following:
This printable has consonant and vowel digraphs.
A consonant digraph is made up of two letters that work together to make a consonant sound. (A consonant sound is produced with some closure of the vocal tract.)
A vowel digraph is made up of two letters that work together to make a vowel sound. (A vowel sound is produced with little to no constriction of the flow of air from the lungs.)
