This digraph activity was super easy to prep! I printed the cards on white cardstock and laminated them for extra durability.
Using my paper trimmer, I cut apart the cards on the solid black lines.
Next, I grabbed a small bucket for the digraph cards so my kindergarten friends could keep the pieces in one spot.
We were ready for some Flower Garden Digraph fun!
Flower Garden Digraph Activity
The activity focuses on the digraphs -CH, -SH, -TH and -WH.
You can use all of the mats at once or work on one sound at a time, depending on where your students are in the reading process.
Since I was working with a small group, I decided to lay out all four digraph mats on the table.
Going in a circle, each student picked a flower digraph card from the bucket and read the word on the card out loud.
“Shell starts with -SH.”
Then, the student placed the shell picture card on the flower garden mat with the -SH digraph.
We kept pulling cards, reading and planting each card until all of our flower digraphs were placed in the correct garden. By the end, we had a beautiful array of flowers!
This activity was a great way to work on digraphs… and grow some reading skills!
