My students are always thrilled when rainbows appear in the springtime.  And these rainbow digraph puzzles are an easy way to bring the rainbow fun indoors to our literacy centers.

Getting Ready

Like many of our printable activities, including the digraph clip cards we have been using, prepping these rainbow digraph puzzles was a cinch!

I first printed them out on cardstock since I knew I would be using them for years to come (sometimes my kids bend the cards while they play, and this keeps them extra sturdy) and then laminated them.

I cut the cards apart on the solid black lines so that I had 18 digraph clouds and 18 picture clouds to combine into 18 colorful rainbows.

Rainbow Digraph Puzzles

These puzzles focus on the digraphs -SH, -CH, -TH and -WH.

You can use all of the puzzles at once, or you can use just a few at a time to focus in on a specific digraph sound or two.

Since I was playing these puzzles in a small group, we decided to tackle them all together.

We first spread out the picture halves of the rainbows face up across the table. Then, we stacked the digraph clouds in a pile.

We took turns pulling a card and making the digraph sound. “s…h…That says sh.”

Then, we searched for a picture in the pile that began with that sound and paired them together!

We kept pulling cards, reading and matching until all of our rainbows were complete.

  4. I can’t get the download button to download the digraph puzzle set.

    1. Hi Barb,
      When you click the blue “Download Here” button, a pop-up should open. You can try checking to make sure your browser isn’t blocking pop-ups from the site or try using a different browser. If you happen to be attempting the download at school, your district’s web filter may be blocking the pop-up. Let me know if you’re not able to get the puzzles!
