Phonetics sounds can be joined together to make a new sound. When two or more consonants are joined together and form a new sound, they are called a digraph. The /sh/ sound is a good example of a digraph, and examples of the sound can be found in words like ‘brush’, ‘fish’, and many others. Ask your child to give you some more examples of words with the /sh/ sound. Look at the pictures in this pdf with your kids. Can they tell you what each of the objects are? Help them check the digraph that is missing from all of the words.
The phonetic sounds are many in number, and each one has its own unique sound. However, some of these sounds can be joined together to form a new one. When two or more consonants are joined together and form a new sound, the sounds are called a digraph. For example, the sh digraph makes the /sh/ sound. Look at the pictures in this worksheet with your kids. Ask them to say the words aloud. Then, help them circle the images that end in the /sh/ sound, such as the word ‘wash’.
