What is a digraph?


A digraph is a group of two successive letters whose phonetic value is a single sound.
Here you have some general ideas to teach a digraph with your children:

  • Name as many things that begins with.... (use the digraph you are teaching or reviewing)
  • Say a word that rhymes with....
  • Does ......sound like ........?
  • Where is the sound.....in this word?
  • List words that ends with ....
  • Go on a .....sound hunt .
  • Can you name an animal that begins/ ends with .....?
  • Can you draw a fruit that begins / ends with ....?
  • Play  "I spy a word that begins with..."
  • Make riddles using the blend you want to introduce or practise.
  • Write silly sentences beginning with that digraph.
