This is an activity pack that works on the digraphs /th/, /sh/, /ch/, /wh/, and /ph/. There are 5 activities that are included (with multiple versions of each!!! It also includes 10 anchor charts, 2 for each digraph. One has just pictures, and one has pictures and words.
Activity 1: Roll and Graph
Each digraph has 4 dice templates and 4 recording sheets. Students roll the dice and record the roll using tallies. Then, they take their tallies and graph them on a bar graph.
Activity 2: Puzzles
Students match puzzle pieces to matching digraphs. There are 2-piece puzzles (pictures and pictures with words) and 4 piece puzzles (pictures and words, and just words). There is also a "Create Your Own Puzzle" activity.
Activity 3: Writing
A work page is given for each digraph. Students decide what digraph the page is about based on two pictures. Then, they write a sentence using both words. Finally, they brainstorm 4 other words that fall into the same digraph pattern.
Activity 4: Room Search/ Sort
This can be used as a group activity, or as a center. GROUP: Students search the room for blue digraph word cards. They place the word with the correct picture header card. CENTER: Students sort the blue word cards under the correct mini-header.
Activity 5: Interactive Notebook review
Students complete a flap page on each digraph. There are 3 versions of this activity: words and pictures, just words, and just pictures. Students glue their flap page into their notebook or onto a sheet of construction paper. Next, student sort their words or pictures into 5 piles (/th/, /sh/, /ch/, /wh/, /ph/). Finally, they glue the pictures or words under the correct digraph flap.
My name is Danielle and I am currently a K-5 Special Education Teacher in Minnesota! This is my 3rd year of full time teaching! I currently have my K-6 Elementary Teaching License and my K-12 SPED license!
The goal I have while creating resources is that fit a wide range of learners!! Differentiation is important in EVERY class, no matter the grade! Each student learns at a different pace and in a different way. When creating, I make sure my items can be/are differentiated in any way possible!
I believe that ALL kiddos can learn, some just need the right tools and the right activity!
