Getting Ready

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!

    The flower digraph garden is precious. Unfortunately when I printed it there was a large black spot on both of the pages with the digraphs. Can you please email it to me. Thanks so much!!

      Hi Teresa,
      Thanks for reaching out. You’ll also want to make sure you have the most recent version of Adobe Reader Other and that you’re printing from the downloaded file. Also, try printing from a desktop rather than a wireless device. If it’s still not working you can email me at

  2. Good morning! I love your center ideas and am so very thankful to receive your emails as a subscriber. I was wondering if anyone else had mentioned having trouble with the download link to these Flower Garden Digraphs. Each time I click on it, the “hand” becomes the cursor arrow and nothing happens. I want to be sure it’s a problem on my end before I email my IT team. 🙂
