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. For example, the wh digraph forms the /wh/ sound. Give your kids some examples of more words that have the /wh/ sound, like ‘whale’, ‘when’, and ‘why’. Now, ask them to name each of the pictures in the worksheet. Help them trace the dotted lines in this tracing sheet to the images that begin in the /wh/ sound, such as the word ‘what’.
When two or more consonants are joined together and form a new sound, they are called a digraph. Make sure that your child understands what a digraph is by giving them some examples of sounds such as /wh/, /sh/, and /ch/. Then, show them words that have these sounds in them. Look at this worksheet with your little ones. Can they tell you what pictures are in this printable pdf? Help them check the digraph that is missing from all of the words.
