Chant a lot “what’s a digraph? What’s a digraph..2 letters 2 letters...that make 1 sound” I also use hand signals for each one...

  • SH is finger over mouth saying shhhh.
  • CH uses your hand to flash your fingers each time you say ch ch.
  • TH are two letters that don’t get a long well so we make a silly face and stick out tongues out to make the sound.
  • WH is hand close to both sides of mouth then push them out wide as you say the sound. My kiddos have did amazing with digraphs this year and are mastering most of the vowel digraphs as well...not something I see every year, but so excited!!
