To prepare these activities, laminate the cards and cut in half if desired. Students will take a card, look at the picture, and build or write the word. Sound boxes are provided. Magnet letters work well for this activity, but it can also be done as a write-and-wipe activity using dry erase markers on laminated cards.
Recording sheets for nine commonly paired vowel digraphs are also included. If you do not wish to use the recording sheets, you can make these activities self-checking by writing the word on the back of the card.
I recommend going over the pictures as a whole group before doing this as an independent center activity.
This resource is included in my Digraph Bundle and my Vowel Digraph Bundle.
